Jim Abbott

On this date in 1993, Jim Abbott throws a no-hitter in a 4-0 Yankees win over the Indians.

"No one wants to be blamed for doing anything to jinx a no-hitter. I had to go to the bathroom for the last four innings, but I was afraid to go." - Yankees manager, Joe Torre

My buddy and I were just discussing Jim Abbott and how remarkable his career was.

They should make a movie based on his life... I mean, talk about an inspirational story.

BTW... very cool card. I'd like to add one of his autographs to the collection one day.
