Dave Stieb’s no-hitter
The Blue Jays have seen some of the best pitchers in the game play in Toronto since 1977. These include the likes of the late, great Roy Halladay, Roger Clemens (regardless of what else he may have done), Jim Clancy and Duane Ward.
However, you could argue the greatest pitcher to ever put on a Blue Jays uniform is Dave Stieb, who holds the team record with 175 wins. His resume also includes seven All-Star appearances, an AL ERA leader award in 1985 and winning the second-most games in the Majors as a pitcher during the 1980s.
In addition, Stieb is the only player in franchise history to have a no-hitter, in 1990. He had already come close in 1989, when he gave up a double against the Yankees, with two men out in the bottom of the ninth. (In fact, he was also on the verge of a perfect game.)
Regardless, the Santa Ana, California native got another chance a year later, against the Cleveland Indians. And this time, he didn’t let the opportunity pass him by.
