Bo Belinsky

One of the most colorful players of the 1960s, the pool-hustling playboy was picked up from the Orioles organization by the Angels in the 1961 expansion draft. Undefeated in his first three major-league starts, he pitched the first big-league no-hitter on the West Coast against the Orioles on May 5, 1962. Acting appearances in several TV shows, dates with Hollywood starlets Ann-Margaret, Connie Stevens, and Tina Louise, and a much-publicized romance with actress Mamie Van Doren helped keep Belinsky in the spotlight even after his pitching deteriorated.
