On This Day in History | 1965

May 3, 2011

A shot from the ’65 campaign

On this day 46 years ago, Barry Drill had one of the most magnificent pitching performances in school history, nearly attaining perfection, but settling for a no-hitter in a 14-0 win over St. Paul’s. Drill was a magician with the baseball, striking out nine, including a stretch of four in a row, and, had he not walked a batter with two outs in the bottom of the 7th, he would have walked off the mound with a perfect game. However, after walking the St. Paul’s center fielder he put his disappointment aside and induced a groundout to achieve the fourth “no-no” in school history.

The offense held up their end of the deal as well, scoring four runs in the 1st and seven runs in the 6th to obliterate their Ivy League rivals. Don Bell was a catalyst with the bat, going 3-for-4 with 4 RBIs.

Behind the impressive no-hit pitching of Drill, the pin-stripes shellacked St. Paul’s 14-0. Everybody played errorless ball, hit at least once, and returned from Wetson’s hamburger stand overjoyed.
