Dunwoody calls it a career

10-time All-Star starter retires

Former Cy Young Award winner and 10-time All-Star starting pitcher Dave Dunwoody has announced his retirement from The Bigs. Dunwoody spent six and a half seasons with the Salem Sacrifices before being traded to Trenton. Dunwoody helped lead the Sacrifices to victory in the season 1 World Series while also splitting the NL Cy Young Award that season with teammate Dwight Salmon.

Dunwoody ranks second all-time in career wins with 226 and second in career strikeouts with 3106. He and Henriquez are the only two pitchers to ever reach the 3000 strikeout plateau. Dunwoody also holds the single season record of 274 strikeouts, set in season 3. In addition to Salem and Trenton, Dunwoody also played for Atlanta, Los Angeles and Monterrey.
