On this day in 1971, St. Louis Cardinals ace Bob Gibson threw the first no-
hitter of his storied career. Gibson’s heroics helped his team sail to an 11-
0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Gibson overcame numerous childhood ailments, including rickets, asthma
and a heart murmur, to earn a basketball scholarship to Creighton University
after high school. His basketball skills were so impressive that in 1957 he
spent a year playing for the Harlem Globetrotters.
