Happy 95th Birthday Virgil "FIRE" Trucks

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.
