Right-handed pitcher, 1960-1970. Inducted 1973.
A shortstop in high school, Maloney was still very new to pitching when he was drafted by the Reds, and took several years of bouncing between the minors and the big league club to master his craft. Had four consecutive seasons with at least 200 strikeouts. In 1965, he took a no-hitter into the 11th but ultimately lost the game. Later that season, he pitched a true no-hitter in 10 innings, the first of two he’d achieve in his career. Twice left no-hitters in progress due to injuries.
