This Week In Baseball History

Jun 13, 2018

For a very short time, Johnny Vander Meer was the biggest sports star in America when he no hit first the Boston Bees and then the Brooklyn Dodgers in successive starts 80 years ago this week. With Bill tending to family matters, Mike looks at Vander Meer's rapid rise, the expectations he could never meet, and how the rest of his career played out. And after wishing a happy birthday to the original Frank Thomas, we say goodbye to Red Schoendienst, Bruce Kison and Chuck Taylor.
