This is a picture of Mickey Abarbanel:

Abarbanel was the left-handed, fire-balling ace of the Fox Cities Foxes in 1966.  As part of No-no November, this week’s Flashback Friday takes you back to his No-hitter against the Wisconsin Rapids Twins on May 28, 1966.

That piece will be going up on the main website soon.  There will be a link when it is ready.

UPDATE: Here is the link and – as mentioned at that link – here is the boxscore from that chilly May evening at Goodland Field:
