More Baseball Notes May 19, 1963

August 8, 2020

In addition to Sandy Koufax, cited in a recent post as having pitched and won on May 19, 1963, there were 5 other Hall of Fame pitchers that started games that day.

In the second game of a doubleheader, Warren Spahn notched his 333rd career win while, in the first game of a doubleheader, Robin Roberts, then pitching for the Baltimore Orioles won his 246th game.

Great pitchers Whitey Ford of the Yankees and Bob Gibson, not quite great yet, lost games that day, while Juan Marichal got a no decision in an eventual Giants’ second game win.

Felipe Alou gave the Giants the second game win with a game ending home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. There was much more that day and I will note some of it in future posts.
