AL Cy Young Winner in 1993, Jack McDowell was born January 16, 1966 in Van Nuys, California. He was nicknamed "Black Jack". McDowell is now a musician with a rock band called Stickfigure.

Jack McDowell was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 20th round of the 1984 amateur draft, but did not sign and instead chose college. After attending Stanford University, McDowell was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 1st round (5th pick) of the 1987 amateur draft and made his Major League debut on September 15, 1987.

By the early 1990s, he had established himself as one of the most dependable pitchers in the game, pitching effectively and recording over 250 innings each season from 1991 to 1993. Jack won 20 games in 1992 and 22 in 1993, when he won the American League Cy Young Award and led the White Sox to the postseason (they lost in the American League Championship Series to the Toronto Blue Jays). From 1988 until 1995, his season ERA was consistently between 3.00 and 4.00, well below the league average. In 1993, he set a modern (post-1950) record by recording a decision in each of his first 27 starts.

McDowell spent one rocky season in New York with the Yankees and put up decent numbers, but was perhaps best known for giving the finger to the fans at Yankee Stadium after being booed off the field after getting bombed by the White Sox on July 18, 1995 in the second game of a doubleheader. McDowell was also the pitcher who gave up the walk-off, series-winning hit to Edgar Mart�nez in Game 5 of the 1995 American League Division Series, scoring Joey Cora and Ken Griffey, Jr. to eliminate the Yankees from the playoffs and send the Seattle Mariners to the American League Championship Series.
