Tom Phoebus (April 7, 1942 in Baltimore, Maryland), was a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball who played with the Baltimore Orioles (1966-70), San Diego Padres (1971-72) and Chicago Cubs (1972). He batted and threw right-handed.
Phoebus began his career with Baltimore pitching shutouts in his first two starts, on September 15 and 20, 1966, against the Angels and Kansas City. He became just the fourth American League pitcher ever to did it. Phoebus finished 14-9 with 179 strikeouts and a 3.33 ERA, en route to being selected The Sporting News Rookie of the Year.
On April 27, 1968, Phoebus threw a 6-0 no-hitter against the Red Sox. Converted outfielder Curt Blefary was the catcher. Meanwhile, third baseman Brooks Robinson helped with the bat and made a great catch to rob a hit from Rico Petrocelli in the 8th inning. Phoebus won a career-high 15 games in that season, and 14 in 1969, including the American League clincher over Cleveland. He also won Game Two of the 1970 World Series in relief duties.
Phoebus was sent to San Diego in the same trade that brought Pat Dobson to the Orioles, and finished his career with the Cubs in 1972.
In a seven-year career, Phoebus compiled a 56-52 record with 725 strikeouts and a 3.33 ERA in 1,030 innings pitched.
