Clair Barth Johnson was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Chicago White Sox (1969-1974, 1976-1977). Bart, his nickname, was the second pitcher from Torrance High School to reach the majors, succeeding Steve Kealey , but Johnson was the first twirler from Torrance to be taken in the baseball draft ( 1967 Draft & 1968 Draft ).

Bart Johnson took the field four times in 1969, and earned four decisions (3 losses, 1 win, 3.22 ERA). A year later, he recorded his first complete game shutout, on September 23, 1970 . In 1971, Johnson pitched in fifty-three games, appearing on the mound as both a starter (16 games started) and a reliever (24 games finished / 14 saves).

Bart told Baseball Almanac that he started feeling "arm and shoulders issues" during the season, but knew he was well on his way to true success. Two years of pitching with pain followed, but in 1974, he was back, eighteen starts, ten wins, four losses, a 2.74 earned run average, and back-to-back complete game shutouts—only four days apart! ( August 24, 1974 / August 28, 1974 )
