In lieu of actual baseball, I’ll be posting snippets that were cut from The Baseball Codes as a way of amusing myself and, hopefully, you. Today’s theme: Talking during a no-hitter.
During Bob Gibson’s no-hitter in 1971, nobody in the St. Louis dugout said a word about it. However, second baseman Ted Sizemore, with a rare start in left field that night, mentioned that he’d had a similarly rare start in left while playing with the Dodgers a season earlier.
As it happened, Bill Singer tossed a no-hitter in that one.
