A Father’s Day baseball trivia question for your Cuban father

Still thinking of what to buy your father? Does he like baseball? Most Cuban fathers do. Does he like baseball history?

Well, test his knowledge with this one.

On this day in 1938, Johnny Vander Meer became the only pitcher in baseball history to throw two back-to-back no-hitters. Vander Meer went on to play 13 seasons with a 119-121 record. He won 49 games and led the NL in strikeouts over a 3-year span before going off to World War II in 1944-45.

His record of back to back no hitters will be very difficult to match or break. Yes, it will be.

Try this one on your Cuban father and bet him some “croquetas” Happy Father’s Day
