Sam "Toothpick" Jones Hurls No-Hitter



May 12, 1955. Sam "toothpick" Jones completes an improbable no-hitter in a 4-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jones walked the bases loaded in the ninth inning, and then proceeded to fan Dick Groat, Roberto Clemente, and Frank Thomas. Jones was the first African-American to toss a no-hitter in Major League Baseball. He is the ninth rookie to accomplish the feat.
