Burt Hooton #32

Kind of like an opposite version of Kravec card. Hooton's card definitely seems to be a spring training shot. Back Facts: Nicknamed Happy because he seldom breaks a smile. There is something on the back of his cards that mystify me. 1. Set Cubs record by striking out 15 mets in one game during rooke season of '71. 2. Hurled no-hitter vs. Phillies 4/16/72 in only his 4th major league start. So what this means is - in his first 4 starts he had no-hitter and a 15 k game or he got the 15 ks in a relief appearance. Both are incredibly WOW.
