Steve Arlin (September 25, 1945)
Steve Arlin was a pitcher for the Ohio State Buckeyes. He led OSU to the 1965 College World Series and named the tournament’s MVP. The following year he led OSU to win the national championship. He played Major League Baseball for the San Diego Padres and Cleveland Indians. In 1972, he pitched a one-hitter and three two-hitter games. His no-hitter game was broken up in the 9th inning by Denny Doyle.
Arlin had 2 outs in the inning and 2 strikes before the single by Doyle. (Doyle also was the only hitter in one-hitters by Nolan Ryan and Gary Nolan too.) A Padre still has not pitched a no-hitter. After his playing career, Arlin became a dentist and practiced dentistry for several years. In 2008, he was inducted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame. Congratulations to Steve Arlin.
