For a couple of years, the White Sox had four lefties in their starting rotation. It was a slightly different crew from one year to the next -- name the time and the pitchers!

The 1980 White Sox (http://baseball-almanac.com/teamstats/roster.php?y=1980&t=CHA) had lefties Richard Wortham,Ross Baumgarten,Steve Trout,and Britt Burns in thier rotation.
Ken Kravec was also another lefty starter during that season.

Yep...in '79 Kravec started 35 times; Burns was not yet on the scene.

Bonus question: who were the righty starters on the staff in '79 and '80?

Rich Dotson and Francisco Barrios

The '80 staff featured another righty starter who would "loom large" for the Chisox.

You wouldn't be thinking of LaMarr Hoyt, now would you?
