Clemente left his mark
Only in death did Roberto Clemente receive the acclaim which during his playing career seemed reserved for others. No one knows how long he might have played or what career records he might have broken.

Alva Lee "Bobo" Holloman
As is well known, the only man to pitch a no-hit game in his first start in the major leagues since the adoption of the 60½ foot pitching distance in 1893 is Alva Lee "Bobo" Holloman. He beat the Philadelphia A's 6-0 on May 6, 1953, almost 20 years ago. As is almost equally well known, it was the only complete game Holloman pitched in the majors, and by late July 1953 he was back in the minors, from whence he never again arose.
