Today is the 95th birthday of former Detroit Tigers pitcher Virgil Tucks.
For us Tigers fans Trucks is a special, one of a kind ballplayer.
In 1952, while going through a record of 5-19, Virgil threw two no-hitters.
On May 16th Virgil no-hit the Washington Senators, and on August 25th he blanked the New York Yankees, and both games were 1-0 Tigers wins.
Thanks to William over at the Foul Bunt blog for reminding us of Virgil Trucks milestone today.
