August 1967: Dean Chance pitched his second no-hitter of the month

Back in 1967, Dean Chance pitched 2 no-hitters in one month.   The first one was a rain shortened 5-inning game and the second was a 2-1 victory over Cleveland.

Chance broke with the Angels in 1964:   20-9, a 1.69 ERA, 11 shutouts and 15 complete games.   Later, he was traded to the Twins and had a great 1967 season:  20-14 and 2.73 ERA.     


My biggest memory of Chance was pitching for the Twins, specially when Boston and Minnesota played for the AL pennant in the last day of the 1967 season.


Overall, he won 128 games with a 2.92 ERA!

1977: "I Just Want To Be Your Everything" by Andy Gibb was # 1 this week

Frankly, I thought that it was The Bee Gees when I heard "I just want to be your everything" on the radio.   Then the announcer said that it was Andy Gibb, the Bee Gees' little brother.    

Andy Gibb had incredible success for a couple of years.   He has huge hits and sold millions of records on his own.    Unfortunately, he couldn't handle success and died very young in 1988.
