Cardinals History

1934– “If I’da known he was gonna throw one, I’da thrown one, too.” –Dizzy Dean, after his brother threw a no-hitter in the nightcap of a double-header

In the second game of a doubleheader at Ebbets Field, 22 year-old Cardinal hurler Paul Dean becomes the fifth rookie to throw a no-hitter, beating the Dodgers, 3-0. His brother Dizzy had thrown a two-hitter in the first game of the twin bill, blanking Brooklyn, 13-0.

1951– In his major league debut, Cardinals hurler Jack Collum throws a two-hit shutout against the Cubs at Sportsman’s Park, 6-0. The rookie southpaw developed a natural screwball due to losing part of his index finger in a farm accident.

2010– The St. Louis Cardinals released Felipe Lopez.
