Donald Eugene Cardwell (December 7, 1935 – January 14, 2008) was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball who played for five National League teams from 1957 to 1970. He was the first pitcher in major league history to pitch a no-hitter in his first game after being traded, hurling a 4-0 gem on May 15, 1960, two days after being traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to the Chicago Cubs. After winning 15 games for the 1961 Cubs, he twice won 13 games for the Pittsburgh Pirates before helping the New York Mets win the 1969 World Series title.
Samuel Jackson Snead (May 27, 1912 – May 23, 2002) was an American professional golfer who was one of the top players in the world for most of four decades. He and two of the other greatest golfers of all time, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, were born within six months of each other in 1912. Snead won a record 82 PGA Tour events.
