After a brief stint with the Boston Red Sox, Hoyt joined the New York Yankees in 1921, and rose to instant stardom, pitching three games in the World Series for his team without giving up a single earned run — over his career, he would win six American League pennants with the Yankees. In his finest year, 1927, Hoyt would post a record of 22 wins and 7 losses for the Yankees, with an ERA of only 2.64. Although Hoyt pitched for 8 more years after leaving the Yankees in 1930, he would never again achieve that level of success.
