This day in baseball: Rookie no-hitter

On August 31, 1935, 28-year-old rookie Vern Kennedy became the sixth rookie in major league history to throw a no-hitter.  The White Sox pitcher dominated the Indians en route to a 5-0 victory at Comiskey Park.  Helping his own cause, Kennedy also managed to stroke a three-run triple in the contest.

    Charboneau wasn’t a pitcher, but he was a rookie back in 1982. Took baseball by storm too. I know you like songs having to deal with baseball and this guy was quite the character, sucked beer through his nostrils, opened bottles with his eye socket and other tales. It makes sense that a former member of punk rock band would have the honors.
