100 FAVORITE PLAYER LIST
#7 DON CARDWELL
ATLANTA BRAVES 1970
I'm sure if you had asked Don Cardwell his career highlight, he would probably have said his no-hitter for the Cubs against the Cardinals in 1960. I watched the last inning of that game on YouTube, which I admit I found to be kind of cool.
Don only spent the last fourteen games of his fourteen year career with the Braves and interestingly his last win as a starting pitcher was a three-hit shut-out against the same Cubs he threw a no-hitter for ten years earlier. There's a bit of symmetry there if you look hard enough.
I definitely had one (if not more) of Don's 1970 baseball card below.
