Burt Hooton Tossed No-Hitter vs. Phillies


April 16, 1972, on this day in baseball history Burt Hooton no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies striking out Greg Luzinski to end the game. We huddled around with dad to listen to every pitch after the fifth inning. Hooton would be traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1975, and would be a solid member of their rotation for ten seasons, and finished his career with the Texas Rangers. He was 151-136 with an ERA of 3.38 for his career.
