  • Reynolds' Second No-Hitter

    Mention the 1951 pennant race and the image produced is Bobby Thomson’s home run, but there was another pennant race that year. The Yankees and Indians were in a tight race, and it wasn't until September 28 that Allie Reynolds pitched a no-hitter, his second of the season, to clinch a tie for the pennant.

    I would bet Yogi never felt smaller in his entire life. You can see Allie rushing in, the Red Sox all standing. You can see a man on the right side, don't know if he's beginning to applaud, hands raised............or he realized that Yogi muffed it and he's giving a big "Oh no."

    You don't want to give any hitter a second chance and when the hitter happens to be ted Williams.................................NO.

    Reynolds never gets his due a hugh part of the Yanke success from 1947 to 1953, 131 wins and 60 losses. Used in the regular season and World Series as a starter and damn good at it. Saved the Yanks in a few big WS games.

    Picked up from Cleveland on the advice Joe Dimaggio.

        Bringing this one back to life, more pictures I put them together. Imagine Reynolds pitching a no-hitter his second of the 1951 season, two outs, 9th inning and the batter is Ted Williams. You do your job, get Ted to foul out but Yogi drops the ball.
        The last guy in the game you want to have a second chance, the great one, Ted Williams.
        First pic, Yogi drops the ball.
        Second, again Allie pitches to Ted. If I recall, Ted said it was the same pitch.
        Third, here we see Yogi hang on to this one.
