Mets’ NoNoHitters.com site

Welcome to the new nonohitters.com, which is shifting its focus from the Mets’ streak that ended in 2012 to one owned by the only team in Major League Baseball without a no-no – The San Diego Padres.

If you’re a Mets fan, don’t worry. You can still find all of the historical Mets content at mets.nonohitters.com.

But historical content is just that – history – and it was time to bring this site into to the present (though with a ’70s retro look). The circa-1962 Mets had a seven-year jump on the circa-1969 Padres, so The Friars have nearly 1,000 games to surpass the Mets drought of 8,019 games. And then there’s the Philadelphia Phillies, who went 58 years, 1 month and 18 days without a no-no. The 8,945-game-long Phillies began on May 3, 1906, one game after southpaw Johnny Lush threw a 6-0 no-hitter against the Brooklyn Superbas, and lasted until June 21, 1964, when Jim Bunning threw a 6-0 perfect game against the Mets during a Father’s Day doubleheader at Shea.
