Thanks for that -- thought I recalled something to that effect -- technically too it would've been 1998 since he had only 1 AB in '97

Sept. 16, 1965
In front of 1,200 people, including two 10 and 11 year old kids who were skipping school, Dave Morehead makes the third out for his no hitter against the Indians

then we (my brother & I) decided to fess up when we got home -- we'll take the punishment we figured instead of never telling our dad we saw a no hitter -- wrote a newspaper column about this day a few years ago -- any photo toward the 3rd base line would readily show 2 towheaded kids, but online research has revealed nothing

on this play Morehead's throw to first base beat speedy Vic Davalillo by a half-step to secure his no no

That's a great story. I've probably been to over 1,000 baseball games and never saw a no hitter.

When Mark Buehrle threw his perfect game a few years ago, my wife was there at Comiskey. I got home from work and caught the last two innings on TV. as soon as she got home, I demanded her ticket stub.

She threw it away.

Thanks -- we knew that big trouble if not reform school was waiting as we got home (it was also a new school that year) -- but also, that my dad (1927-94), after being suitably upset, would save our butts -- love you pop

even though hardly any press was there, am totally convinced a photo showing us is out there -- would take big time tracking down in local libraries etc

As a huge Oiler fan growing up, and attendee of all the great games with the Steelers
at the Astrodome, I remember Franco Harris getting squashed. He couldn't gain a yard.
The guy we couldn't stop was Rocky Bleier. Harris got the hype, Bleier got the yards.

Great memories. Some years later I met Terry Bradshaw at DFW Airport. We shook
hands (I couldn't believe how big he was). I told him I was a Houstonian, and had such
great memories of those years and how much respect we had for the Steelers. He said,
"Oh, we respected you guys too. A lot. Whenever we played Houston nobody could move
for about four days." Loved it.

Good one of the Hitman -- one of the greats -- a titlist in five-or-so weight divisions -- boy the fights he had -- had his way with two legendary Latino greats, Roberto Duran & Pipino Cuevas, both 2nd round KOs -- & those two unbelievable three-round losses he had, one to Iran Barkley, who landed a Haymaker on Hearns -- & of course Thomas' great May 1985 fight with Marvin Hagler -- man what a bout that was

the one I recall best was going to the Hotel Bradford in Boston July 1980 to watch the closed circuit showing of his fight in Detroit with Cuevas -- pretty big $ for two rounds worth

Growing up in the Detroit suburbs in the 70s and 80s, Hearns was something of a hero. I went to a Pistons game in the early 80s. Hearns was sitting in the last row of the lower level. I happened to go up to the concourse at halftime. He was kind of "holding court" between his bodyguards. Signed autographs and talked to people.

Very nice guy.

As the Astrodome was nearing completion in late 1964, Satchel Paige was brought in to test the effect throwing indoors would have on breaking pitches.


What picture ever showed the Where of a place better than these -- "the seventh wonder of the world" at the time -- & w/Satchel in it?? Yow -- what hurler Ever more perfect for a hi-tech dry run of Astro-currents in ushering in the outer-space era of indoor baseball --

if it looks like Satchel still has it, he does -- a full year later, Sept. 25 1965, pitching for Athletics, the old master shut down the Sox in 3 IP -- Yaz got only hit off him IIRC -- they were in KC -- Carl has said getting a hit off the old master, one of the great 'Negro League' players who he'd heard all about as a kid, And Who Still Had His Same Stuff At The Ripe Old Age Of 59 -- was one of his biggest thrills in his 23 years...

here's a description of it as he came out of the game according to wilkepedia -- Satchel's manager at the time was Haywood Sullivan, later the Red Sox owner...

"Paige took the mound, to be removed according to plan by Haywood Sullivan. He walked off to a boisterous ovation despite the small crowd of 9,000. The lights dimmed and, led by the PA announcer, the fans lit matches and cigarette lighters while singing "The Old Gray Mare".

He scored the one millionth run in MLB history. Growing up in Detroit, I saw him a lot. Oddest batting stance I have ever seen.




Nice airbrush on his cap by the way.

All Sox geezer fans (esp. a then 12 yr old) remember this day -- Oct. 1 1967 -- on the last day of the season, Yaz goes 7-for-8 as Sawx swept Twins -- "and there's pandemonium on the field!!" as fans poured out of the stands, even knowing nothing had been won yet

7-for-8 -- 10-for-13 in final 4 games -- all part of a 23-for-44 stretch in last 2 weeks -- the game was never played by anyone at a higher level than Yaz that year -- his fielding was also off the charts

A season for the ages for sure. Yaz in 1967:

AL MVP
Triple Crown
AL batting champion (2nd of 3 in his career)
AL home run leader
AL RBI leader
Gold Glove Award (3rd of 7 in his career)
AL All Star (4th of 18 in his career)

Actually it was Bob Watson who scored the 1,000,000th run. Milt May drove in the run with a 3-run homer.
