Whitey Ford Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Whitey Ford booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. Retired pitcher, Whitey Ford, spent his entire 18-year career with the New York Yankees. Ford was voted into the Hall of Fame in 1974.

Whitey Ford was signed by the New York Yankees as an amateur free agent in 1947, and played his entire career in a Yankees uniform. He was given the nickname "Whitey" while in the minor leagues for his exceptionally blond hair. Ford graduated from Aviation High School in nearby Sunnyside, Queens.

Ford began his Major League Baseball career on July 1, 1950, with the Yankees and made a spectacular debut, winning his first nine decisions before losing a game in relief. Ford received a handful of lower-ballot Most Valuable Player votes despite throwing just 112 innings, and was voted the AL Rookie of the Year by the Sporting News. (Walt Dropo was the Rookie of Year choice of the BBWAA.)

Whitey Ford went from the No. 4 pitcher on a great staff to the universally acclaimed No. 1 pitcher of the Yankees, becoming known as the "Chairman of the Board" for his ability to remain calm and in command during high-pressure situations. Ford won the Cy Young Award in 1961. Ford's number 16 was retired by the New York Yankees in 1974.
