"The toughest (two or three batters to get out) was probably Ted Williams , but Mantle , Dickey , DiMaggio and Berra were also tough. Yogi was tough because he was a bad ball hitter. He would swing at anything so you never knew what to throw him. I would just throw strikes down the middle because that was as effective as anything else." - Virgil Trucks on Baseball Almanac (Harold Friend, 'Virgil Trucks Interview', Source )

Virgil Trucks Trivia / Highlights: Pitched two no-hitters in 1952 ( May 15, 1952 & August 25, 1952 ); however, he only had five wins the entire season. Joined the Twenty Wins Club in 1953 . Led the American League in shutouts in 1949 (6) and 1954 (5). Led the American League in strikeouts in 1949 with 153, but once in the minors (1938) struckout 418 batters and pitched four no-hitters.

Virgil Trucks earned himself a spot in the No-Hitter Record Book in 1952, joining Johnny Vander Meer and Allie Reynolds as the only pitchers with two no-hitters in the same season, an elite set of aces since joined by Nolan Ryan and Roy Hallady . Let's take a closer look at both of Virgil Trucks gems:

Virgil Trucks No Hitter (#1) / May 15, 1952 .

Virgil Trucks had lost both his decisions for the eighth-place Detroit Tigers in 1952 when he faced the second-place Washington Nats on Thursday, May 15, 1952 , before 2,215 fans at Briggs Stadium. His rival was righthander Bob Porterfield .

In the first inning, Trucks, nicknamed Fire Trucks because of his great fastball, retired Eddie Yost on a foul to third, Jim Busby on a fly to left and Jackie Jensen on a grounder to short. Mickey Vernon started the second with a bounder to third, and Pete Runnels was called out on strikes. Gil Coan hit an easy grounder to second but Jerry Priddy fumbled it for an error, then threw the ball high over first baseman Steve Souchock's head for another error as Coan went to second. Fred Marsh ended the inning with a bouncer to short.

In the third, after Clyde Kluttz flied to center and Porterfield grounded to third, Yost was hit by a pitch. Trucks closed the frame by throwing his fastest ball of the game past Busby for a called third strike. The Nats went down on routine plays in the fourth and fifth, with Trucks fanning Coan and Kluttz in the fifth.

Porterfield bounced to short and Yost struck out in the sixth, but Busby was hit by a pitch as Trucks became the first pitcher to hit two batsmen in a no-hitter . With Jensen at bat, Busby tried to steal second. He was trapped but reached second when Priddy threw low for his third error, tying the record for most miscues by player behind a no-hit pitcher . Jensen lined to Pat Mullin in left to close the frame.

Two flies and a grounder to second took care of the Senators in the seventh. Marsh opened the eighth with a fly to left and Kluttz drew the only walk of the game off Trucks. Porterfield , trying to sacrifice, fouled out to first, and Yost took a called third strike, hotly disputing Umpire Jim Honochick's call.

The game was scoreless as the ninth began. Busby took a ball, then lined to center fielder Johnny Groth . Jensen worked the count to 3-2 and bounced to first where Souchock made the play unassisted. Vernon took a curve for a strike, fouled the second back to the screen. The third pitch was high and the fourth was fouled at the plate. Trucks then threw one that Vernon swung at and missed to end the inning.

But the game wasn't over. Porterfield had blanked the Tigers on three hits and two walks, George Kell's single with two out in the sixth being the first hit of the game. Vic Wertz doubled to lead off the seventh and Trucks singled with two gone in the eighth.

In the Tigers' ninth, after Kell grounded to short, Mullin belted a 370-foot liner that Busby caught five feet from the right center field stands. Then Wertz came up. He took two balls, then hit an inside fast ball into the right field stands for a homer to win the game.

Researched and written by Rich Westcott ( RichWestcott.com / Rich Westcott Books ), original text from No-Hitters (McFarland Publishing, 02/15/2000, 'Virgil Trucks', Pages 172-173).

Virgil Trucks No Hitter (#2) / August 25, 1952 .

After pitching his first no-hitter on May 15, 1952 , Virgil Oliver Trucks made his next start for Detroit six days later against Philadelphia. He held the A's hitless until Billy Hitchcock singled with one out in the seventh, gave up one more hit and won 5-1, although he needed relief.

Trucks did not win another game until June 24 when he pitched a six-hitter against Boston. He scored his fourth victory July 22 against Washington and Eddie Yost hit Trucks' first pitch of the game for a single. It was the only hit off the righthander.

Meanwhile, Trucks had lost a lot of games for the last-place Tigers. He had a 4-15 record when he faced the first-place New York Yankees and rookie southpaw Bill Miller on Monday, August 25, 1952 , before 13,422 fans at Yankee Stadium.

In the last of the first inning, Trucks retired Mickey Mantle on a pop to short and fanned Joe Collins . Hank Bauer also struck out but catcher Matt Batts let the third strike get through him and Bauer took first on an error. He was stranded as Yogi Berra flied to right.

The Yanks went down in order on routine plays in the second but an unusual one began the third. Phil Rizzuto hit a slow grounder to short and Johnny Pesky bobbled the ball slightly, then threw low to first. The official scorer, John Drebinger, called it an error, but changed it to a hit a moment later in the belief that the ball had caught in the webbing of Pesky's glove. This decision was later reversed.

Rizzuto was sacrificed to second by Miller and took third after Mantle walked as Collins grounded out, first baseman Walt Dropo and Trucks collaborating on a nice play. Bauer fanned to end the inning.

Trucks chalked up two more strikeouts in the fourth. Billy Martin opened the fifth with a grounder to first and was retired. Dropo to Trucks, who covered first. Rizzuto followed with one of the three hard hit balls by the Yanks, lining one back to the mound that Trucks stabbed. Bill Miller rolled to Trucks for the third out. In the sixth, Mantle fanned, Collins popped to short and Bauer flied to left.

The Tigers scored the game's only run in the seventh and, as Trucks warmed up for the last half of the inning, it was announced over the public address system that he hit credited to Rizzuto in the third, had been changed to an error. Drebringer, after talking by dugout phone to Pesky and learning that the ball had not stuck in the webbing of the shortstop's glove, switched to his original verdict.

With this extra incentive, Trucks really bore down. Berra opened the seventh with a fly to right and Gene Woodling grounded out, Dropo to Trucks, who made his fourth putout, a no-hit game record for a pitcher . Loren Babe flied to right for the third out.

Trucks retired Martin on strikes in the eighth and set down two pinch-hitters. Johnny Mize hit for Rizzuto and flied to third, and Irv Noren , batting for Miller , flied to left.

With a slim, 1-0 lead, Trucks faced the Yanks in the ninth. He fanned Mantle on a 3-2 pitch for his eighth strikeout. Collins lined one that appeared to be out of center fielder Johnny Groth's reach, but he raced over and caught it head high. Bauer , with the third hard hit ball off Trucks, nearly knocked down second baseman Al Federoff , but he recovered to throw the batter out, ending the game.

Miller had done a good job of baffling the Tigers, too. Batts ' infield single in the second was Detroit's only hit in the first six innings. With one out in the seventh, Dropo doubled to left center and scored on Steve Souchock's single down the left-field line.

Trucks, the third to pitch two no-hitters in one year, did not win another game, finished with a 5-19 record for the lowest winning percentage ever compiled in the season of his no-hitter .

Researched and written by Rich Westcott ( RichWestcott.com / Rich Westcott Books ), original text from No-Hitters (McFarland Publishing, 02/15/2000, 'Virgil Trucks', Pages 176-177).

On April 15, 1954 , Virgil Trucks started for the Chicago White Sox in Memorial Stadium, the first regular season game played in the Baltimore Orioles new ballpark. His opponent that day, Bob Turley , earned the first win in Memorial Stadium history and Trucks received the first loss.
