Biographical Information[edit]

"I didn't throw a curve all night." - Don Nottebart, talking about his no-hitter, in which he relied on a sinking fastball and sliders

First a reliever, then a starter, then a reliever again, Don Nottebart's best years were in 1963, when he had 11 victories for the Houston Colt .45's and pitched a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies, and in 1966, when he had 11 saves for the Cincinnati Reds.

In Houston in 1963, he played with the 19-year-old Joe Morgan, the 19-year-old Rusty Staub, and the 21-year-old "Toy Cannon" Jimmy Wynn.

In Cincinnati in 1966, he was one of the veterans on a young team that featured Pete Rose, Tony Perez, Vada Pinson, and Deron Johnson.

His obituary in the Boston Globe indicates that after baseball he ran a service station and also a carpet and flooring business. Don Nottebart
