1970 HEADLINE: Vida Blue Hurls No-Hitter In Just 8th Big League Start!!!

On this day in 1970, Vida Blue threw a no-hitter for the Oakland A’s.  Amazingly, it was just the eight start of his major league career.

At home and in front of a crowd that just eclipsed 4,000 fans, the 20-year old Blue put on quite a performance.

The numbers – 9 innings pitched, 0 hits allowed, 1 walk, 9 strikeouts, and most importantly an Oakland Athletics victory!!!

Happy Anniversary Mr. Blue!!!
