» April 12, 1962: Pete Richert of the Dodgers, in his ML debut, fans the first six batters he faces against the Reds, tying Karl Spooner's record set on September 22, 1954. This includes four straight strikeouts (a passed ball allows Gordy Coleman to reach 1B) in the 3rd inning. He wins in relief, of Stan Williams, lifted in the 2nd frame after allowing four runs. Richert sparkles, giving up no hits or walks and fanning seven in three 1/3 innings.

» October 15, 1969: A memorable World Series game pits Tom Seaver against Mike Cuellar. RF Ron Swoboda's questionable dive at Brooks Robinson's sinking liner with runners at 1B and 3B in the 9th inning results in a brilliant catch, even though Frank Robinson tags and scores the tying run. In the 10th, Mets pinch-hitter J.C. Martin, running illegally inside the 1B line after a bunt, is hit on the wrist by P Pete Richert's errant throw, enabling pinch runner Rod Gaspar to score from second as the Mets win 2–1. The game is enlivened by Earl Weaver getting thrown out after protesting ball and strike calls by Shag Crawford. Earl is the 3rd manager to leave early in a World Series, but the first since 1935.
