Today in Comics History, September 18: Happy birthday, Harvey Haddix!

Born today in 1925: Major League Baseball pitcher and pitching coach Harvey Haddix (St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies, Cincinnati Redlegs, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Baltimore Orioles). As a Pirate, he pitched a near-perfect game against the Braves in 1959. (See?)

Happy birthday, Harvey! Pitch me a low slow one right down the center...whoa, I totally whiffed that one.
