Happy birthday to no-no thrower Jim Colborn

Happy 68th birthday to Jim Colborn, who threw the first home stadium no-hitter for the Kansas City Royals.

Steve Busby threw two no-nos before Colborn, but both were on the road. On May 14, 1977, at Royals Stadium, Colborn no-hit the Texas Rangers for a 6-0 win. It was the first Royals no-no at the ball park now known as Kauffman Stadium.
