On September 18, 1925 — Five days after making a start in a 4 – 3 loss to the Browns, White Sox pitcher Dickie Kerr loses his only decision this year, 11 – 6, to Washington. It’s the last decision of his brilliant but short career. Kerr (21-17 in 1920; 19-17 in 1921) turned down a Sox offer of $4,500 in 1922 and signed with a Texas semi-pro team for $5,000. Commissioner Landis suspended Kerr, and he didn’t return to the major leagues till this month. Kerr was the winner of two games in the 1919 World Series.
