Major League Baseball Player. He played Major League baseball for ten seasons (1967 to 1976), all as a pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The right-handed hurler compiled a regular-season won-lost record of 76-71. The highlight of his career came on September 20, 1969, when he no-hit the New York Mets, 4-0, at Shea Stadium. The 1969 season was also his best, record-wise, as he was 14-3. He also pitched in the National League Championship Series for Pittsburgh in 1970, 1971, and 1972 and in the World Series in 1971. He was killed on his 29th birthday while driving to a party at a golf course near Martins Ferry, Ohio. The car he was driving in a light rain went left of center and collided head-on with another vehicle.
