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 9, including a stretch of 4 in a row, and, had he not walked a batter with 2 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 4th “no-no” in school history.

The offense held up their end of the deal as well, scoring 4 runs in the 1st and 7 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.
