YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1934 Paul Dean throws a no-hitter in the second game of a double header as the Cardinals blanked the Dodgers, 3 – 0. His brother, Dizzy, took a no-hitter into the eighth in the opening game.

1970 Oakland’s Vida Blue, making just his eighth major league start, blanks the Twins, 6- 0, without allowing a hit.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1918 Taken in the Rule 5 Draft, Salt Lake City’s Lefty O’Doul heads to the Yankees.

1957 Cleveland selects Hoyt Wilhelm, who had been waived by the Cardinals.

1960 Philadelphia signs amateur free agent Adolfo Phillips.

1969 Oakland purchased Juan Pizzaro from the Indians.  Pizzaro was paired with Vida Blue at AAA in 1970 and is credited with helping the hard-throwing Blue refine his delivery and teaching Blue how to pitch.  (See Blue’s SABR Bio.)

1970 The Cubs select Hoyt Wilhelm, who had been waived by the Braves.
