Jackowski was the plate umpire on September 18, 1968 when the Cardinals' Ray Washburn
pitched a no-hitter against the Giants the day after San Francisco's Gaylord Perry
no-hit St. Louis, the first consecutive game no-hitters in history. It was the second
no-hitter called by Jackowski that season, making him one of ten umpires to have
worked the plate for two no-hitters in one season.
