Ewell Blackwell -"The Whip" pitched a no-hitter in 1947 and then took a no-hitter into the ninth inning in his next start. Eddie Stanky broke it up.
Lena Blackburne -Played for the Reds in 1918, but is better remembered as the marketer of Blackburne's Rubbing Mud, a variation of which is still used to rub down baseballs at all ML games.
John Lackey (33) -Fried chicken or no fried chicken, boy did he stink this year.
Bo McLaughlin (58) -Mentioned here because I went to high school with him.
Jim Bunning (80) -Terrific pitcher; only won 20 once but won 19 four other times.
Vern Stephens -In his twenties he was one of the best all-around players in baseball, then he tore up a knee and went downhill fast. Died young and is largely forgotten today.
