Today in 1969 Cubs history: Jimmy Qualls breaks up Tom Seaver’s perfect game

Seaver was a big reason the Mets passed by the Cubs in 1969. From 1952 through 1972, the Cubs were involved in nine no-hitters — six by Cubs pitchers, three thrown against them. They seemed almost commonplace. Now, of course, we know that the Cubs hold the record for the longest streak of games without being no-hit, 7,920 games in between Sandy Koufax’s perfect game in 1965 through Cole Hamels’ no-hitter in 2015.
