• Whom did Dave Stewart punch out?

    I know just what you mean. Growing up in the Bay Area, I remember seeing that on local TV. Day game at the Coliseum. Stewart either brushed back a guy that was crowding the plate, or actually hit him. The batter charged the mound to get a piece of
    Stewart. He, on the other hand, coolly threw his glove to the ground, took a couple of steps towards the plate, and flattened the batter with one punch. It was awesome!

    Stewart had the one no-hitter against the Blue Jays in 1990, but either in 1989 or 1990, he threw a complete game shutout of the Yankees, facing the minimum 27 batters. Rickey Henderson bunted for in infield single to lead off the game, was subsequently
    erased in a double-play, and Stewart retired every subsequent batter he faced. When he was one, he was one of the best pitchers I ever saw.
