Clifford Day Chambers (January 10, 1922 – January 21, 2012) was a professional baseball pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1948-1953. He played for the Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates, and St. Louis Cardinals. He was born in Portland, Oregon.
Chambers played two seasons of college baseball for the Washington State Cougars from 1941–1942.
On May 6, 1951, while with the Pirates, Chambers no-hit the Boston Braves 3-0 in the second game of a doubleheader at Braves Field. A month later, on June 15, the Pirates traded Chambers and Wally Westlake to the Cardinals for Dick Cole, Joe Garagiola, Bill Howerton, Howie Pollet and Ted Wilks. Not until Edwin Jackson in 2010 would a pitcher be traded after hurling a no-hitter earlier in the season.
