We remember one of the great left handed pitchers in major league history.  

Warren Spahn was born on this day in 1921 in Buffalo, New York.  He joined the Boston Braves in 1942 and moved to Milwaukee with the team for the 1953 season.   

It was in Milwaukee that he got to play with Lew Burdette, Eddie Matthews and Henry Aaron.   They won the 1957 World Series and the 1958 NL pennant.

His numbers were awesome:  363 wins, 3.09 ERA, 382 complete games, 5,243 innings pitched and 63 shutouts.   He pitched no-hitters in 1960 and 1961.   He was selected to The Hall of Fame in 1973.

Spahn’s greatest pitching performance may have been a 1-0 loss to Juan Marichal in 1963.  He pitched 16 innings before giving up a HR to Willie Mays.

Spahn died in 2003!
