We remember Bobby Murcer (1946-2008)


We remember Bobby Murcer who was born in Oklahoma on this day in 1946.  He died on July 12th 2008 after a long battle with cancer. 

In 1971, Murcer hit .331 with 25 HR, 94 RBI's and played a great CF.   He had other great years but 1971 was probably his best all around season. Murcer finished second to Tony Oliva in the batting race that year!

Bobby Murcer hit 252 career HRs with 1063 RBIs. He was a real fan favorite because of his personality and passion for the game.

May 15, 1973: The first of Nolan Ryan's 7 no-hitters!

We recall the first of Nolan Ryan's 7 no-hitters.   It happened in Kansas City and Ryan had 12 K's to go with the no-hitter.   

Ryan threw another in July 1973 against the Twins, the Tigers in 1974 and then Orioles in 1975.   He threw #5 against the Dodgers in 1981, #6 against the A's in 1990 and #7 against the Blue Jays in 1991.
