Baseball May 19, 1963 Notes

August 5, 2020

An incredible array of great pitchers took the mound on Sunday May 19, 1963.

There were 7 doubleheaders and three single games in the 20 team(s) big leagues. Only the eventual ’63 title winning, Dodgers, among the 14 teams involved in the doubleheaders, gained a sweep and that after hard fought wins vs the second year New York Mets.

In the opener, Sandy Koufax out dueled Roger Craig, as the Dodgers won (1-0), while they needed Frank Howard’s game ending 2 run home run to complete the sweep, (4-2) in 13 innings.

More on the great pitchers, Sandy being one of them, that pitched on May 19, 1963 in future posts.
