Joe Haynes (baseball)

Joseph Walton Haynes (September 21, 1917 – January 6, 1967) was an American professional baseball player, coach and front office executive. A right-handed pitcher, he logged 14 seasons in Major League Baseball as a member of the Washington Senators (1939–40; 1949–52) and Chicago White Sox (1941–48). He married Thelma Mae Robertson Griffith, niece and adopted daughter of Washington owner Clark Griffith, in October 1941, ten months after he had been traded to Chicago by his future father-in-law.

Born in Lincolnton, Georgia, Haynes' pro career began in 1937. He stood 6 feet 2 inches (188 cm) tall and weighed 190 pounds (86 kg). In 379 games pitched, including 147 games started, Haynes compiled a 76–82 win-loss record, 53 complete games, five shutouts, 159 games finished and 21 saves in 1,581 innings pitched. He allowed 1,672 hits, 823 runs, 704 earned runs, 95 home runs and 620 walks, with 475 strikeouts, 26 hit batsmen, 35 wild pitches, 6,890 batters faced, four balks and a 4.01 ERA.

Of Haynes' 379 appearances, 218 came with the White Sox, where he won 55 of 98 decisions (.561) and posted a solid (3.14) ERA. He was named to the 1948 American League All-Star team (although he did not appear in the game) and led the American League in games pitched (40) and games finished (35) in 1942 and in earned run average (2.42) in 1947.

He was reacquired by Washington after the 1948 season, but was ineffective, going only 10–21 (5.42) in 112 games in his second stint with the Senators.

As a member of the Griffith family whose wife inherited 26 percent of the franchise's stock in 1955,[1] Haynes remained in the Washington organization after his playing career ended.

He served as the Senators' pitching coach from 1953–55, coached in their farm system, then moved into the front office as executive vice president, working with his brother-in-law, club president Calvin Griffith, in Washington and after the team moved to MinneapolisSt. Paul as the Minnesota Twins in 1961. Haynes died in Hopkins, Minnesota, of a heart attack suffered while shoveling snow[2] at the age of 49.
