  1. He also pitched two no-hitters for St. Louis. His brother Ken also pitched a no-hitter for the Astros, making them the only brothers to do so. He pitched the only no hitters at Busch stadium, was a 20 game winner, and less than a week prior to his untimely passing he threw out the first pitch at Game 7 of the 2011 World Series at Busch Stadium. A great pitcher, definitely collection worthy. I’m happy to have his autograph in my collection.
