Dave Righetti Throws No-Hitter vs. Boston 26 Years Ago Today

I was in summer camp when "Rags" threw his no-no vs. Boston. Camp was up in Port Jervis, NY and TV and radio reception was less than stellar. One of my counselors who had a day off came back later that day to tell us the news.

"Rags'" no hitter was the first Yankee no-hitter since Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series and the first by a Yankee left hander since 1917.

Rags is currently the pitching coach for the San Francisco Giants.
