Mel Parnell
March 20, 2012

Melvin Lloyd Parnell was a Major League
Baseball left-handed starting pitcher.
The winningest lefthander in Red Sox
history, ace of the staff during much of
the Ted Williams era, and a two-time All-
Star, died Tuesday after battling
cancer, the New Orleans Times-
Picayune reported. He was 89.

Parnell spent his entire ten-year career
with the Boston Red Sox (1947–1956),
compiling a 123-75 record with 732
strikeouts, a 3.50 earned run average,
113 complete games, 20 shutouts, and
1752.2 innings pitched in 289 games
(232 as a starter). He has the third-
highest career winning percentage for a
left-hander in Fenway Park (minimum of
more than 25 decisions), at 71-30.

His “happiest memory’’ in baseball, he
said in a 1978 Globe interview, was the
no-hitter he pitched on July 14, 1956,
against the Chicago White Sox. The no-
hitter, the first by a Red Sox pitcher in
33 years, offered a fitting final flourish
to Mr. Parnell’s career.
