Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Right now I don't even care about the ($1,000 bonus) money, but I'll take it if they want to give it to me. I don't even know right now what this all means to me. It's like I'm in another world. I was actually crying after the (no-hit) game." - George Culver in The Dayton Daily News (Jim Ferguson, Diary of a No-Hitter: Upset Stomach to Ingrown Toenail , July 30, 1968, Page 12)

George Raymond Culver was a Major League Baseball player who pitched for the Cleveland Indians (1966-1967), Cincinnati Reds (1968-1969), St. Louis Cardinals (1970), Houston Astros (1970-1972), Los Angeles Dodgers (1973) and Philadelphia Phillies (1973-1974).

Culver was an outstanding five-sport athlete at North High School (CA), where he was offered $1,000 to sign with the Philadelphia Phillies , but turned it down, played collegiate baseball at Bakersfield Junior College, and signed with the New York Yankees for $2,500 in 1963.

On July 29, 1968 , George Culver woke up and felt sluggish. He was feeling sick, he was too nauseated to eat his lunch, he tried to ride to work with his roomie, Pat Corrales , but his stomach had other plans. He arrived late to the ballpark, then couldn't warm up as planned because his ingrown toenail flared up, requiring a novacaine injection. The AP wire said, "George Culver had himself quite a day - a lousy, sick, toe-hurtin', curve-ballin', no-hittin ', glorious kind of day."
