Cliff Chambers, who threw a 1951 no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates, was born 94 years ago today.

During the second game of a Sunday, May 6, 1951, doubleheader at Braves Field, Chambers no-hit the Boston Braves for a 3-0 win. Chambers walked twice as many batters (8) as he struck out (4) and threw two wild pitches, but helped his cause with an RBI single in the eighth inning for an insurance run.
