Exactly 39 Years Since Dave Righetti’s No Hit Game

July 4, 2022

It was exactly 39 years ago today on Monday July 4, 1983 that Dave Righetti of the New York Yankees hurled a no hit game vs the Boston Red Sox.

The game was on a cable outlet called Sports Channel and the legendary Mel Allen called the last out as Righetti struck out a great hitter, Wade Boggs.

Years later circa 2013, I sat with Dave Righetti in the San Francisco Giants’ dugout and he recalled the game and sent a nice recorded message to my now deceased friend Bernard Ganeles.

Dave was the pitching coach for all 3 relatively recent S.F. Giants’ title teams while Boggs and Boston, denied a crown in excruciating fashion by the Mets in the ’86 World Series won with the Yankees ten years later.

Click below to view my post from September 2013 when I talked with 3 Giants, including Righetti. The others were Giants broadcaster Duane Kuiper and pitcher Madison Bumgarner.

Bumgarner, in the following year’s post-season evoked past greats as he led the Giants to the aforementioned third crown. 

Time, with its inevitable change, marches inexorably on and today Mr. Bumgarner is scheduled to pitch for the Arizona Diamondbacks vs the San Francisco Giants in Arizona.
