Sports Throwback Thursday: Longtime Oklahoma resident Warren Spahn entered the Hall of Fame in August 1973
Warren Spahn, one of greatest pitchers in Major League history, was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame on Aug. 6, 1973.
Spahn, who lived a good portion of his life in Oklahoma, was inducted with 83% of the vote. During his 21-season career (1942-1965), he won 363 games, the most ever for a left-hander.
Warren Spahn was born in Buffalo, N.Y., on April 23, 1921, but through much of his career the family's primary home was the Diamond Star Ranch south of Hartshorne. Warren Spahn later moved to Broken Arrow, where he died in 2003 at the age of 82.
Spahn managed the Tulsa Oilers for five seasons, winning 372 games from 1967 to 1971.
Each year, the Warren Spahn Award is given to MLB’s top left-hander.
