The 1963 American League Rookie of the Year, Peters won 124 games in a 14-year big league career. Peters had a taste of major league action from 1959-1962 when he made occasional appearances for the Chicago White Sox. He came up for good in 1963 and made his presence felt, going 19-8 and posting a 2.33 ERA which was tops in the junior circuit. Peters made the All-Star Team in 1964 when he led the league in wins with 20. His ERA that season was a very good 2.50. He led the league in ERA again in 1966 with a minuscule 1.98 mark. In 1967, Peters made his second All-Star team when he went 16-11 for Chicago with a 2.28 ERA. The White Sox sent him to the Red Sox in 1970 and he won 16 games for Boston that year. He followed that up with a 14-win campaign in 1971, but made just four starts the following year before calling it quits.
