Jim Clancy’s Near Perfect Game

After having watched Dallas Braden’s perfect game this past Sunday, I am reminded of the time that former Blue Jays pitcher Jim Clancy nearly had a perfect game.  It was September 28th, 1982 vs. the Minnesota Twins.  Clancy retired the first 24 batters he faced without allowing a walk before Randy Bush hit a broken bat looper just out of the reach of Damaso Garcia.

Of course, as we all know, there is only one no-hitter in Blue Jays history and that belongs to Dave Stieb.
