The great Juan Marichal, who was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1982, made his major league debut with style in 1960.      He retired the first 19 batters, and carried a no-hitter two outs into the eighth inning.   It was a 2-0 complete game victory, 12 Ks and just 1 walk.

He finished his rookie season: 6-2 with a 2.66 ERA.

The game was a sign of things to come:  243-142 and a career ERA of 2.89.  Marichal threw 52 shutouts; 10-time All-Star and was the game’s MVP in 1965.

Without question, the greatest Latino pitcher ever!
