Dean Brothers

For a time, Dizzy Dean and his brother Paul both pitched for the St. Louis Cardinals. One day Dizzy pitched a one-hitter in the first game of a double-header and his brother had pitched a no-hitter in the nightcap. "Shucks," Dizzy remarked, "if I'd known Paul was gonna pitch a no-hitter, I'd-a pitched one too!"

["If Satch and I were pitching on the same team," Dean once said of Satchel Paige, "we'd cinch the pennant by July 4 and go fishing until World Series time!"]
