Happy # 77 Dick Ellsworth



We say happy # 77 to Dick Ellsworth, who was born on this day in Lusk, WY.

By the time I saw him pitch with the 1970 Milwaukee Brewers, Dick Ellsworth was a veteran filling the roster of an expansion team.      

Before Milwaukee, he was a very tough pitcher with the Cubs and Red Sox during the 1960's.   

Ellsworth won 115 games, lost 137 but finished with a decent 3.72 ERA.       His record just confirms that Ellsworth pitched for some bad teams.    

From 1960-66, Ellsworth’s winning percentage exceeded that of the Cubs as a whole (.435 to .422).

Wonder what his record would have been had he pitched for the Cardinals who won 3 NL pennants?
