Pitching through four decades in the Major Leagues, Jim Kaat won 283 games with the Washington Senators, Minnesota Twins, Chicago White Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals. After his playing days, Jim went on to win seven Emmy Awards for his work as a broadcaster for the New York Yankees. Since joining MLB Network, Jim has been nominated for three national Emmys.
