Biographical Information[edit]

Mike McCormick threw a rain-shortened "no-hitter" on June 12, 1959 despite allowing a hit - the no-hitter went five innings, then he allowed a hit in the 6th, which was eliminated from the official records as rain cancelled the game before the inning was completed.

He later won the 1967 National League Cy Young Award. He was the only San Francisco Giants hurler to win a Cy Young Award until Tim Lincecum in 2008 and 2009.

He made his first appearance on a baseball card in the 1958 Topps set; however, the picture on the card is that of teammate Ray Monzant, who looked a lot like him, but who was right-handed. He got to feature on many other cards, though, given his relatively long career.
