Ted Breitenstein pitched a No-Hitter in his first complete game as a rookie for the St. Louis Browns in 1891.
He faced exactly 27 batters, but it was not a Perfect No-Hitter, as he walked one batter.

Furthermore, at age 40 (near end of his career) he pitched another No-Hitter.
It was his 3rd No-Hitter during an 11-year Major League career.

A pitcher (Armando Galarraga) has pitched 8-2/3 perfect innings and an ump (Jim Joyce) totally blows a call on the 27th batter to deny a deserving pitcher a perfect game.

I don't think it's occurred in the past or since.

MLB should give Galarraga the perfecto. If reviews were allowed to turn over the play in the past, then this wouldn't have happened. Yeah, I know, but what about all the other blown calls? Well, this one was an especially screwed up call.

Jim Joyce had the class to apologize for the blown call.

It's only happened once, an umpire apologizing.

On September 13, 1936, Bob Feller, just 17 at the time, struck out 17 against the Philadelphia Athletics, setting the American League record.

It was the only time someone struck out his age in the in the American League.

Kerry Wood would later strikeout 20 as a 20 year old for the Cubs in 1998, the only time a pitcher would strike out his age in the National League.

On April 28, 1989 Mitch Williams, of the Cubs, entered the 9th inning with 2 outs and a 3-1 lead over the Padres. He proceeded to pick a runner off 2nd without throwing a pitch.

Williams is the only player in MLB history to record a save without throwing a pitch.

I was watching the game on WGN and thought it was pretty cool.

On June 12, 1970 Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Doc Ellis threw a no hitter while tripping on LSD. He walked 8 men and hit a batter.

Only one switch-hitter managed to hit .300 from both sides of the plate in his career.
Chipper Jones hit .304 from his natural right side, and .303 from the left.

His idol Mickey Mantle hit .330 from his natural right, but .281 from the left.

On May 18, 1988 Elrod Hendricks managed a team during a regular season major league game, for the first and only time.

Why he signed this lineup card the next day when Frank Robinson is credited as the manager is anybody's guess.

I believe that the first HR in the old Yankee Stadium was hit by none other than Casey Stengel and it was an inside the park dinger.

Wrong you are.

Not Stengel it was.

Ruth it was.

I'm pretty sure Ty didn't wear Tigers jerseys during his two years with Philadelphia

John

You are partially correct.

In 1923, Stengel played with the N.Y. Giants....and, he did hit the 1st HR in Yankee Stadium....in the World Series that year.

Not sure if its ever been done again but Bruce Sutter blew a save twice in the same game (the famous Ryne Sandberg game in 1984), giving up game-tying HR's to Ryno in the 9th and 10th innings.

Is that possible? I would think after having blown a save, if his team then came back to take the lead, Sutter was now in line not for a save, but for a win. So, if he blew the lead a second time, I would think that gives him a loss, not another blown save.

Late to the party, but pretty impressive for a player that, as far as I know, has his only card during his playing days in the 1934 Al Demaree set. As a shortstop and third baseman that played in 129 games for the Indians in the 1932 season and batted .297 in over 500 at bats, you would think he would have at least snuck into the 1933 Goudey set.
