The Milwaukee Braves’ Warren Spahn threw his second of two no-hitters, 57 years ago today.
On Friday, April 28, 1961, Spahn no-hit the San Francisco Giants for a 1-0 victory at Milwaukee County Stadium. Just two Giants reached first base on walks, but each was immediately sent back to the dugout on a double play. The Braves’ sole error was in the ninth inning on a foul ball behind the plate hit by Ed Bailey that was dropped by Braves catcher Charlie Lau.
