1925 - Eppa Rixey, pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds


National Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Eppa Rixey was born on May 3, 1891. Rixey played for the Philadelphia Phillies (NL) and the Cincinnati Reds (NL) during a career that spanned 21 years. Until his record was surpassed in 1959 by Warren Spahn, his 266 victories were the most by a south paw in the history of the National League. His boyhood home still stands in downtown Culpeper.

Did you know that on this date (6/15) in 1938 Reds pitcher Johnny Vander Meer became the then and still to this day, only pitcher to ever throw back-to-back no-hitters.
