The White Sox have announced today that they will be retiring Mark Buehrle’s number at a pre-game ceremony on June 24 prior to the White Sox 1:10 game against Oakland.
Buehrle will become the 12th player to have their number retired with the White Sox. He joins former teammates Harold Baines, Frank Thomas, and Paul Konerko with that honor.
Over 12 seasons with the White Sox, Buehrle made 365 regular season starts, the fourth most for the White Sox. He also pitched in six postseason games, including four starts, with the White Sox and went to four all-star games. That includes a start and a save in the 2005 World Series win over the Astros. He also threw the 16th no-hitter in White Sox history in 2007 and the Sox’ second perfect game in 2009.
After his time with the Sox, Buehrle continued his career with one season in Miami and three in Toronto. In his final season in 2015, he led the league in complete games and walks per nine innings.
In case you were wondering, individual game tickets go on sale Friday, March 3 at 10 am. Also, this seems like a great time to rewatch all the outs from the perfect game.
