MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The man who threw the first no-hitter in Minnesota Twins history has died.

Twins President Dave St. Peter tweeted the news of Jack Kralick’s passing, citing family members. Kralick was 77.

Kralick, a left-handed pitcher, was a member of the Washington Senators when they became the Twins.

On Aug. 26, 1962, Kralick no-hit the Kansas City Athletics at Metropolitan Stadium, the first no-hitter in Twins history. According to Misc. Baseball, an online blog, Kralick had a perfect game going into the ninth before he walked a batter with one out.

Kralick was traded to the Cleveland Indians the next season for Jim Perry.
