The "Kitten" was a 20 game winner with the Cardinals. He also pitched for the Phillies, Reds and Pirates. He won a Gold Glove winner with the Reds. He is best remembered for his no hitter against the Braves in 1959 which he lost 1-0. He was the pitching coach under Wes Westrum.

I disagree. The most notable thing about Mr. Haddix is his 10-inning perfect game, which he lost. (You can look it up!)

To clear up some confusion on a couple of earlier posts about Harvey Haddix:

On May 26, 1959 while with Pittsburgh, Harvey pitched a perfect game for twelve innings against the Milwaukee Braves. Future Met Felix Mantilla led off the bottom of the thirteenth by reaching on an error. After a sac bunt then an intentional walk to Henry Aaron, Joe Adcock hit one over the fence in right- center, but Aaron left the field before coming around to score, and Adcock passed him while rounding the bases. Both were called out, making the final score 1- 0. The next day NL President Warren Giles ruled the hit by Adcock a double rather than a home run.

In September 1991, the Committee for Statistical Accuracy redefined a no-hit game as one that ends after nine or more innings with a team failing to get a hit. So Haddix lost the perfect game in the thirteenth inning, and 32 years later lost the no- hitter from baseball's official records.

Harvey wound up the winning pitcher in game seven of the 1960 World Series thanks to Bill Mazeroski's home run. He also had been the starter and winner in game five.

The poor guy who lost his no-hitter was among the first major-league pitching coaches of such young arms as Seaver, Ryan, McGraw, etc.
