June 23, 1971: What a day for Rick Wise of the Phillies

Rick Wise broke with the Phillies at 18 in 1964.    Overall, he pitched until 1982.  

His career numbers were pretty good:   188-181 with a very respectable 3.69 ERA.     His numbers have to be put in the context that he pitched for bad teams in Philadelphia.

He was traded to Boston and won 19 games for the 1975 Boston Red Sox that lost a 7 game series to Cincinatti.   

Rick was a workhorse completing 138 games.

On this day in 1971, Rick Wise had one spectacular day:  He pitched a no-hitter and hit 2 HR.     No other pitcher had done before or since!    

Rick's amazing day made him one of the great Phillies of all time.
