Former Cub Don Cardwell Dies

Don Cardwell, who threw a no-hitter in his first start as a Cub in 1960, died Monday. Most here have probably seen replays of the last out, with Jack Brickhouse pleading with Walt Moryn to catch the sinking liner hit to left. This is quite a bit before my time, but it has to rank as one of the bigger moments in Cubs history. Can you imagine if a Cubs pitcher did this today, in his first start for the team.

Did anyone here see Cardwell pitch, or this no-hitter when it happened?
