Thomas Harold Phoebus (born April 7, 1942 in Baltimore, Maryland), is a former 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 attended high school at Mount Saint Joseph College, a private high school in Baltimore.
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 do it. In 1967, 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.
In the Minors, Tom led the Florida State League with 12 losses while playing for the Leesburg Orioles in 1961. In 1962, he was tops in the Northern League with 195 strikeouts and 152 bases on balls while playing for the Aberdeen Pheasants. The next season, 1963, he led the Eastern League with 124 bases on balls while playing for the Elmira Pioneers. The minor leaguer's pitch count didn't let up in 1964 when he again led the International League with 120 bases on balls while playing for the Rochester Red Wings. In 1966 his walks were down and his Ks were still high, but he still managed to get the league lead in the International League with 208 strikeouts and 95 bases on balls while playing for the Rochester Red Wings.
Over the course of his career, Phoebus held All-Stars Felipe Alou, Sal Bando, Leo Cardenas, Norm Cash, Nate Colbert, Darrell Evans, Jimmie Hall, Elston Howard, Frank Howard, Dave Kingman, Rico Petrocelli, and Maury Wills, to a .092 collective batting average (17-for-184). He also held Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Al Kaline, Mickey Mantle, Willie McCovey, and Willie Stargell to a .117 collective batting average (7-for-60). Tom gave up the first two hits of Dámaso Blanco's major league career.
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.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
