White Sox to retire Buehrle’s number 56
CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox plan to retire No. 56, the uniform worn by former ace Mark Buehrle.
The White Sox say they will honor the four-time All-Star and 2005 championship team member before the game against Oakland on June 24.
Buehrle was 161-119 with a 3.83 ERA in 12 seasons in Chicago, pitching a no-hitter against Texas in 2007 and a perfect game against Tampa Bay in 2009. The left-hander was 161-119 with a 3.83 ERA for the White Sox and 214-160 with a 3.81 ERA during a 16-year career that included time with Miami and Toronto.
