This day in baseball: Gornicki’s one-hitter

In his first-ever Major League start, Hank Gornicki of the Cardinals threw a one-hitter to defeat Philadelphia at Shibe Park, 6-1 on May 3, 1941.  The thirty-year-old rookie gave up the lone hit to rookie outfielder Stanley Benjamin.  Unfortunately, in spite of his impressive beginning, Gornicki would only go on to win fifteen games in his career.
