This day in baseball: Rookie no-hitter

On August 31, 1935, 28-year-old rookie Vern Kennedy became the sixth rookie in major league history to throw a no-hitter.  The White Sox pitcher dominated the Indians en route to a 5-0 victory at Comiskey Park.  Helping his own cause, Kennedy also managed to stroke a three-run triple in the contest.
