    Description

    KEN FORSCH GAME USED NO-HITTER BALL. Houston's second game of the 1979 season featured journeyman Ken Forsch on the mound against Atlanta.  His biorythms were in sync that day, and Ken no-hit the rather dismal Braves.  This was a major milestone in the Forsch clan, however, as sibling rivalry was now requited.  (Younger brother, Bob, had registered a no-hitter in '78.)  The ball offered here was used in that 1979 performance.  It's an ONL (Feeney) ball, and on a side panel, Ken Forsch has signed, adding the notation "No Hitter April 7, 1979 Astros 6 Braves 0."  To date, the Forsches uniquely hold the record as the only brothers to have hurled major league no-hitters.
