1966 HEADLINE: Jim Palmer’s World Series Debut Is Historic!!!
On this day in 1966, a 20-year old Jim Palmer threw a gem in Game 2 of the World Series.
Still in his rookie season, and on the road to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers, Palmer took the mound with the entire baseball world watching.
And this kid delivered one of the greatest pitching performances in World Series history. And he was the youngest player on the field.
Palmer pitched a masterpiece. Going the distance, Palmer and his Orioles teammates won the game 6-0. He threw a complete game shutout while allowing just 4 hits and striking out 6 batters. A legendary performance by a calm, cool-mannered kid!!!
Congratulations Mr. Palmer!!!
