“Old Hoss” Radbourn

Providence Grays pitcher Charles ‘Old Hoss’ Radbourn threw a no-hitter, 133 years ago today.

On Wednesday, July 25, 1883, at Cleveland’s Kennard Street Park, Radbourn no-hit the Cleveland Blues for an 8-0 victory.

Radbourn’s greatest season was in 1884, when he posted a 59-12 with a 1.38 ERA, including an amazing 73 complete games. Imagine those numbers in the pitch count era.
