Pat Hulme picked up win in GCL; Saw rookie league over three seasons, briefly Utica

Pat Hulme picked up the win for the Gulf Coast League White Sox in this July 1988 game, The Bradenton Herald wrote.

He did it by going five innings of one-hit, no-walk ball, The Herald wrote.

Hulme got that win in his first pro season. He went on to see time in two more campaigns. He topped out in short-season.

Hulme's career began that year in 1988, taken by the White Sox in the 27th round of the draft out of Hanna High School in South Carolina. He was also credited by his full name, Patrick Hulme.

At Hanna, Hulme also hit. He picked up three hits and four RBI in an April 1986 contest for Hanna. A Hulme infield hit scored in run in a May 1988 game. 

With the White Sox, Hulme pitched. He started with the GCL squad in 1988. In 11 outings, nine starts, he went 3-0, with a 2.83 ERA. That September, in the Florida Instructional League, Hulme got hit in the head with a line drive and knocked out of a game.

Hulme returned to the GCL for 1989, in an all-relief capacity. He saw 15 appearances, picked up a win and a save and ended with a 1.51 ERA. 

He saw 14 total outings for 1990, four at short-season Utica. He gave up two earned in 3.1 innings there and played the rest of the season back in the GCL. His 10 outings there ended with a 2.25 ERA. That season marked his last as a pro.
