Chien-Ming Wang came out of nowhere just when the Yankees needed him most. The 2005 season looked to be a bust, as one starter after another fell victim to injury. But the Bombers dipped into their minor league pool and called Wang up to the show, and the Taiwanese righty put on a show, overcoming an injury of his own to go 8-5 with a 4.02 ERA and 47 strikeouts. Wang pitched even better in 2006, going 19-6 with a 3.63 ERA and 76 strikeouts as the Yanks won the AL East. Chien-Ming Wang has hand signed this official MLB baseball. A Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included.
