Recalling Dave Righetti’s No Hit Game 33 Years Ago Today

July 4, 2016

Exactly 33 years ago today on Monday July 4, 1983 Dave Righetti pitched a no hit game for the New York Yankees vs the Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium.

Years later, Righetti a truly classy individual, who has been a part of 3 San Francisco Giants’ title teams as their long time pitching coach, recalled the game fondly as he and I chatted in the S.F. dugout before a game vs the New York Mets.

I recall seeing the end of the game on Sports Channel with the great Mel Allen calling the end of the game.

Righetti, never on a title team with the Yankees, struck out future Hall of Famer, Wade Boggs to end the game.

Boggs needed to go to the Yankees to claim a title in 1996, never having won one with the Red Sox. Righetti has prospered as stated before, winning 3 titles as S.F. pitching coach.
