Happy 66th birthday to John Montefusco, who threw a no-hitter for the San Francisco Giants in 1976.
On Wednesday, September 29, 1976, at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, “The Count” no-hit the Atlanta Braves for a 9-0 win. Montefusco struck out four and allowed just one base runner, issuing a fourth-inning walk to Jerry Royster.
Dirk Lammers is a veteran journalist who began rooting for the New York Mets in the early-1970s when the team’s no no-hitter count was barely 2,000 games old. Lammers has since turned his research into Baseball’s No-Hit Wonders: More Than a Century of Pitching’s Greatest Feats (Unbridled Books) and NoNoHitters.com, where he maintains the Internet's largest archive of no-hitter information.
