Career highlights and awards

Early years

Born and raised in Fresno, California, his parents were Earl and Marjorie (née Kickashear) Maloney, and he has a sister, Jeanne. His father Earl was a sandlot and semi-professional baseball player on the west coast in the 1930s, who later opened one of the largest used car dealerships in Fresno. After playing Little League and Babe Ruth baseball, Maloney built a reputation as one of the finest athletes in the history of Fresno High School.

Though he starred on the basketball and football teams, his passion was baseball. As a shortstop, he batted .310, .340, and .500 in his sophomore through senior seasons while leading the team to three consecutive undefeated seasons and Northern Yosemite League championships from 1956 to 1958. He was scouted by all 16 Major League teams as a shortstop. Maloney attended Fresno City College and the University of California at Berkeley; he was signed by scout Bobby Mattick to the Cincinnati Reds in 1959 for a reported $100,000.[1]

Career

In 1963, Maloney was 23–7 and struck out 265 batters; in 1965, he was 20–9 and struck out 244; in 1966, he was 16–8 and struck out 216; and in 1968, he was 16–10 and struck out 181. At age 21 in 1961, Maloney had one appearance in relief in the World Series, hurling ⅔ of an inning early in the fifth and final game as the Reds fell to the New York Yankees.[2][3]

Injuries shortened his career, robbing him of the chance to pitch for the "Big Red Machine"—the fabled Cincinnati NL dynasty from 197079. Maloney was able to pitch in only seven games for the Reds in 1970, due to a ruptured Achilles tendon, and he was winless in just three starts.[4] With the Angels in 1971, he was winless in four starts and made nine other appearances in relief.

Over his career, he won 134 games (all with the Reds) and lost 84, with an ERA of 3.19. In 1973, he was elected to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame.[5]

No-hitters

Maloney pitched two games in which he gave up no hits through nine innings in 1965, while going on to win 20 games that year. His first hitless nine-inning performance was on June 14 against the New York Mets. This Monday night game lasted through ten scoreless innings, with Maloney striking out eighteen with just one walk.[6][7] But rookie right fielder Johnny Lewis led off with a home run to center in the top of the eleventh and Maloney lost the game 1–0.[8][9] At the time, that game was officially recognized as a no-hitter, but the rules were later changed to omit no-hit games that were broken up in extra innings. Maloney had given up a second hit in the eleventh inning; at the time he had three one-hitters to his credit.[6]

His second no-hitter (and first official no-hitter under current rules), was two months later on August 19 and also required ten innings, but he won that one 1–0 over the Chicago Cubs. In the first game of a Thursday doubleheader, Maloney outdueled Larry Jackson, with the Reds winning on a Leo Cardenas home run, with one out, in the top of the tenth, which struck the left field foul pole. This was the first no-hitter in modern major league history in which the pitcher who threw it went more than nine innings. Maloney struck out twelve, but had ten walks and hit a batter; he threw 187 pitches in the game.[10][11] With the win, he got another raise of a thousand dollars.[12]

His second official no-hitter was on April 30, 1969, in which he beat the Houston Astros 10–0 at Crosley Field in Cincinnati, caught by twenty-year-old Johnny Bench.[13] Maloney's pitching line that Wednesday night included thirteen strikeouts and five walks.[14][15] Ironically, the next night Don Wilson of the Astros returned the favor to the Reds, pitching his second career no-hitter in a 4–0 Astros victory.[16][17] The double no-hitters in consecutive games was the second such occurrence in major league history. Gaylord Perry and Ray Washburn had accomplished the same feat several months earlier in September 1968.[18]

Personal

Maloney and his wife Lyn reside in Fresno, where he is a former director of the city's Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Council. He has three children with his first wife, Carolyn.[1]

1965 Major League Baseball All-Star Game

The 1965 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 36th midseason exhibition between the all-stars of the American League (AL) and the National League (NL), the two leagues comprising Major League Baseball. The game was played on July 13, 1965, at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minnesota. The game resulted in a 6–5 victory for the NL.

1967 Philadelphia Phillies season

The 1967 Philadelphia Phillies season consisted of the Phillies' 82–80 finish, good for fifth place in the National League, 19½ games behind the NL and World Series Champion St. Louis Cardinals. The Phillies would not finish above .500 again until 1975.

Archie Reynolds

Archie Edward Reynolds (born January 3, 1946) is a former professional baseball pitcher. He appeared in 36 games over five seasons in Major League Baseball without earning a win. He had eight losses.

Reynolds was born in Glendale, California, but grew up in East Texas, and graduated from John Tyler High School in Tyler, Texas. After attending Paris Junior College in Paris, Texas, Reynolds was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 38th round of the 1966 Major League Baseball draft. He dominated Rookie ball, going 9–3 with a 2.13 earned run average for the Pioneer League's Treasure Valley Cubs to earn a promotion all the way to double A in 1967. He went 13–2 with a 2.19 ERA with the double A San Antonio Missions in 1968, and earned his first call to the major leagues that August. He appeared in seven games for the Cubs, and had a 6.75 ERA. His one loss was his only start against the San Francisco Giants on August 27.For the most part, Reynolds spent all of 1969 assigned to Tacoma, making only two starts for the Cubs in the second game of doubleheaders on June 15 & 22. The Cubs won, and Reynolds left with a lead in his June 15 start against the Cincinnati Reds, however, after giving up a lead off home run to opposing pitcher Jim Maloney to start the fifth, followed by a hard single back to the mound by Pete Rose, Reynolds was pulled, and was ineligible for the decision.Reynolds was 0–2 with a 6.60 ERA for the Cubs in 1970 when he was dealt to the California Angels for Juan Pizarro. He spent the rest of the season assigned to the Angels' Pacific Coast League affiliate, the Hawaii Islanders, where he went 7–3 with a 2.62 ERA. On May 26, 1972, he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers for outfielder Curt Motton. He appeared in five games for the Brewers in 1972, spending most of the season and all of 1973 with the triple A Evansville Triplets. He returned to the Hawaii Islanders in 1974, now a San Diego Padres affiliate, where he was 1–4 in nine games.

James H. Maloney

James H. "Jim" Maloney (born September 17, 1948) is a former Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Connecticut.

Maloney was born in Quincy, Massachusetts. He was a Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) volunteer from 1969 until 1970. He graduated from Harvard University in 1972 and received a law degree from Boston University School of Law in 1980. Prior to his entry into politics he practiced law in Danbury. He was a member of the Connecticut State Senate from 1986 until 1995.

Maloney was elected to Congress in 1996 and represented Connecticut's 5th district from January 3, 1997 until January 3, 2003. In that election, Maloney defeated incumbent Republican Gary Franks because of President Bill Clinton's strong showing in Connecticut and negative TV ads alleging Franks was a Waterbury slumlord. Maloney held the seat despite two strong challenges from Mark Nielsen in 1998 and 2000. In 2002, the reapportionment process merged Maloney's Waterbury-based district with the New Britain-based 6th District of Republican incumbent Nancy Johnson. While the new district was numerically Maloney's district (the 5th), its demographics slightly favored Johnson, who won by over 20,000 votes.

Joe Christopher

Joseph O'Neal Christopher (born December 13, 1935 in Frederiksted, U.S. Virgin Islands) is a former outfielder who played in Major League Baseball from 1959 through 1966. Listed at 5' 10", 175 lbs., he batted and threw right-handed.

Christopher reached the majors in 1959 with the Pittsburgh Pirates, spending three years with them before moving to the New York Mets (1962–65) and Boston Red Sox (1966).

While in Pittsburgh, Christopher was used as a backup in all three outfield positions for Bob Skinner (LF), Bill Virdon (CF) and Roberto Clemente (RF). He was first called up when Clemente was injured, making his debut in nothing less than Harvey Haddix's near-perfect game on May 26, 1959. As a member of the 1960 World Series Champion Pirates, he was a utility player, pinch-running in three games and scoring two runs (games 2 and 5).

Christopher became the Mets’ fifth pick in the 1961 MLB Expansion Draft. In 1964 he enjoyed easily his finest season as a major-leaguer, hitting .300 with 16 home runs, 76 RBI, 78 runs, 163 hits, 26 doubles, and eight triples in 154 games, all career-highs. He had a career-best day on August 19, collecting two triples, a double, and a home run in an 8–6 victory over his former Pirates teammates. Then, on September 25 he broke up the no-hit bid of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Jim Maloney at Shea Stadium. His second-inning single was the only hit against Maloney, who had to settle for a 3–0 shutout.

Christopher played briefly in 1966 for the Red Sox and was dealt with pitcher Earl Wilson to the Detroit Tigers, who sent Julio Navarro as part of the package. Although Christopher’s major league career had come to an end on June 9, 1966 (he never played for Detroit), he stayed active in the minors through 1968. He also played winter baseball in Dominican Republic, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

In an eight-season career, Christopher was a .260 hitter with 29 home runs and 173 RBI in 638 games, including one five-hit game and eight four-hit games.

Johnny Lewis (baseball)

Johnny Joe Lewis (August 10, 1939 – July 29, 2018) was an American Major League Baseball player who played for the St. Louis Cardinals and New York Mets from 1964 to 1967. He was signed as a free agent by the Detroit Tigers in 1959. He batted left-handed and threw right-handed, and was listed as weighing 189 pounds (86 kg) and at 6 ft 1 in (1.85 m) in height. His first game was on April 14, 1964 against the Los Angeles Dodgers and his final game was on June 11, 1967. He was born on August 10, 1939 in Greenville, Alabama.

Lewis is probably best known for breaking up a Jim Maloney no-hitter in the 11th inning with a game-winning homer for the Mets. In that Crosley Field game, Maloney threw a complete game of 11 innings and allowed no hits over the first ten innings. Lewis' homer in the 11th gave Maloney the loss, 1–0. Lewis had the nickname "The Gunner" when with The Mets for his ability to throw out runners heading to home plate and the bases.Bob Gibson credits Johnny Lewis with helping him to rehab from the Roberto Clemente line drive which broke his leg in 1967 by being his practice catcher to keep his arm strong while Lewis was serving in the Cardinal front office at that time. In later years, Lewis was a coach for the Cardinals (1973–76, 1984–89), a scout for them, and managed their Rookie League affiliate, the Calgary Cardinals, in 1977 and 1978.

Lewis died July 29, 2018.

Johnny Weekly

John Weekly (June 14, 1937 – November 24, 1974) was an American professional baseball player whose career extended from 1956 through 1965. The outfielder appeared in 53 Major League games for the Houston Colt .45s from 1962 to 1964. Weekly batted and threw right-handed; he stood 6 feet (1.8 m) tall and weighed 200 pounds (91 kg).

He was born in Waterproof in Tensas Parish, Louisiana, but graduated from high school in Pittsburg, California, and attended Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, California. His career began in the New York Giants' organization, but was never called up by the MLB Giants, who moved to Weekly's home San Francisco Bay Area in 1958. Instead, he was selected in the 1961 Rule 5 draft by expansion team Houston, set to enter the Majors in 1962. Weekly's big-league debut came in the Colt .45s fourth-ever game, on April 13. He grounded out to the second baseman as a pinch hitter off Jack Hamilton of the Philadelphia Phillies in the ninth inning of a 3–2 defeat at Connie Mack Stadium. Six days later, he collected his first MLB hit: a solo home run off the Chicago Cubs' Don Cardwell in a 6-0 Houston triumph at Wrigley Field. Weekly was returned to the Giants' system in mid-May after starting five games in the outfield and 13 total appearances; his five hits included three extra-base blows, among them his second big-league homer (off Pete Richert of the Los Angeles Dodgers) on May 7.After finishing 1962 with the Triple-A Tacoma Giants, he was reacquired by Houston and assigned to the Triple-A Oklahoma City 89ers, where he had his finest minor league season in 1963, batting .363 with 86 hits in 67 games. That earned him a promotion to the Colt .45s in midseason for a 34-game stint. Weekly batted .225 with three home runs and 18 hits. His high-water mark came September 18, with three extra base hits in five at bats against the Cincinnati Reds, including two doubles off Cincinnati fireballer Jim Maloney. He drove in four runs and hit his fifth and final big-league homer off the Reds' Dom Zanni.Weekly made the Houston roster coming out of spring training in 1964, but made only two hits in 15 at bats and returned to Oklahoma City. On June 15, he was traded to the Baltimore Orioles, but logged only nine games for the Orioles' Triple-A affiliate before returning to the Houston organization. After one more full year with the 89ers, in 1965, Weekly left professional baseball. He died from injuries sustained in a road accident in Walnut Creek, California on November 24, 1974.

List of Cincinnati Reds no-hitters

The Cincinnati Reds are a Major League Baseball franchise based in Cincinnati. They play in the National League Central division. Also known in their early years as the "Cincinnati Red Stockings" (1882–89) and "Cincinnati Redlegs" (1954–59) pitchers for the Reds have thrown 16 no-hitters in franchise history. A no-hitter is officially recognized by Major League Baseball only "when a pitcher (or pitchers) allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings", though one or more batters "may reach base via a walk, an error, a hit by pitch, a passed ball or wild pitch on strike three, or catcher's interference". No-hitters of less than nine complete innings were previously recognized by the league as official; however, several rule alterations in 1991 changed the rule to its current form. A no-hitter is relatively rare, but only one team in Major League Baseball has never had a pitcher accomplish the feat. On September 16, 1988, Tom Browning threw the only perfect game, a special subcategory of no-hitter, in Reds history. As defined by Major League Baseball, "in a perfect game, no batter reaches any base during the course of the game."While Dick Burns of the Outlaw Reds hurled the first no-hitter in Cincinnati baseball history, Bumpus Jones threw the first no-hitter in Reds history on October 15, 1892. The most recent no-hitter was thrown by Homer Bailey on July 2, 2013. Six left-handed starting pitchers have thrown no-hitters in franchise history and the other seven pitchers were right-handed. Eleven Reds no-hitters were thrown at home and only five on the road. They threw two in April, three in May, four in June, three in July, one in August, two in September, and one in October. The longest interval between no-hitters in franchise history was between the games pitched by Browning and Bailey, encompassing over 24 years. Conversely, the shortest interval between no-hitters was between the two consecutive games pitched by Johnny Vander Meer, encompassing merely 4 days from June 11, 1938 till June 15, 1938. The team against whom the Reds have thrown the most no-hit games (three) is the Atlanta Braves (formerly "Boston Braves"), who were defeated by Vander Meer (first no-hitter in 1938), Clyde Shoun (in 1944), and Ewell Blackwell (in 1947). There are two no-hitters which the team allowed at least a run. The most baserunners allowed in a no-hitter was by Jim Maloney (in 1965), who allowed 11. Of the 16 no-hitters, five have been won by a score of 1–0, more common than any other results. The largest margin of victory in a Reds no-hitter was an 11–0 win by Ted Breitenstein in 1898. The smallest margin of victory was 1–0 in wins by Fred Toney in 1917, Shoun in 1944, Maloney in 1965, Browning in 1988, and Bailey in 2012.

The umpire is also an integral part of any no-hitter. The task of the umpire in a baseball game is to make any decision "which involves judgment, such as, but not limited to, whether a batted Ball is fair or foul, whether a pitch is a strike or a Ball, or whether a runner is safe or out… [the umpire's judgment on such matters] is final." Part of the duties of the umpire making calls at home plate includes defining the strike zone, which "is defined as that area over homeplate [sic] the upper limit of which is a horizontal line at the midpoint between the top of the shoulders and the top of the uniform pants, and the lower level is a line at the hollow beneath the kneecap." These calls define every baseball game and are therefore integral to the completion of any no-hitter. 14 different umpires presided over each of the Reds' 16 no-hitters.

The manager is another integral part of any no-hitter. The tasks of the manager is to determine the starting rotation as well as batting order and defensive lineup every game. Managers choosing the right pitcher and right defensive lineup at a right game at a right place at a right time would lead to a no-hitter. 12 different managers have led to the Reds' 16 no-hitters.

This is a list of team records for the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. (The Reds do not recognize records set before 1900.)

List of Major League Baseball no-hitters

This is a list of no-hitters in Major League Baseball history. In addition, all no-hitters that were broken up in extra innings or were in shortened games are listed, although they are not currently considered official no-hitters. (Prior to 1991, a performance in which no hits were surrendered through nine innings or in a shortened game was considered an official no-hit game.) The names of those pitchers who threw a perfect game no-hitter are italicized. For combined no-hitters by two or more pitchers on the same team, each is listed with his number of innings pitched. Games which were part of a doubleheader are noted as either the first game or second game. The most recent no-hitter was pitched by Taylor Cole and Félix Peña of the Los Angeles Angels on July 12, 2019.

An official no-hit game occurs when a pitcher (or pitchers) allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings thrown by the pitcher(s). In a no-hit game, a batter may still reach base via a walk, an error, a fielder's choice, an intentional walk, a hit by pitch, a passed ball or wild pitch on strike three, or catcher's interference. Also, due to these methods of reaching base, it is possible for a team to score runs without getting any hits.

While the vast majority of no-hitters are shutouts, no-hit teams have managed to score runs in their respective games a number of times. Five times a team has been no-hit and still won the game: two notable victories occurred when the Cincinnati Reds defeated the Houston Colt .45s (now called the Houston Astros) 1–0 on April 23, 1964 even though they were no-hit by Houston starter Ken Johnson, and the Detroit Tigers defeated the Baltimore Orioles 2–1 on April 30, 1967 even though they were no-hit by Baltimore starter Steve Barber and reliever Stu Miller. In another four games, the home team won despite gaining no hits through eight innings, but these are near no-hitters under the 1991 rule that nine no-hit innings must be completed in order for a no-hitter to be credited.

The pitcher who holds the record for the shortest time between no-hitters is Johnny Vander Meer, the only pitcher in history to throw no-hitters in consecutive starts, while playing for the Cincinnati Reds in 1938. Besides Vander Meer, Allie Reynolds (in 1951), Virgil Trucks (in 1952), Nolan Ryan (in 1973), and Max Scherzer (in 2015) are the only other major leaguers to throw two no-hitters in the same regular season. Jim Maloney technically threw two no-hitters in the 1965 season, but his first one ended after he allowed a home run in the top of the 11th inning. According to the rules interpretation of the time, this was considered a no-hitter. Later that season, Maloney once again took a no-hitter into extra innings, but this time he managed to preserve the no-hitter after the Reds scored in the top half of the tenth, becoming the first pitcher to throw a complete game extra inning no-hitter since Fred Toney in 1917.Roy Halladay threw two no-hitters in 2010: a perfect game during the regular season and a no-hitter in the 2010 National League Division Series. He is the only major leaguer to have thrown no-hitters in regular season and postseason play.

The first black pitcher to toss a no-hitter was Sam Jones who did it for the Chicago Cubs in 1955. The first Latin pitcher to throw one was San Francisco Giant Juan Marichal in 1963. The first Asian pitcher to throw one was Los Angeles Dodger Hideo Nomo in 1996.

Through July 12, 2019, there have been 301 no-hitters officially recognized by Major League Baseball, 258 of them in the modern era (starting in 1901, with the formation of the American League). Joe Borden's no-hitter in 1875 is also noted, but is not recognized by Major League Baseball (see note in the chart).
