It’s a busy day for no-no birthdays, with our wishes going out to Kennedy, Shoun and Fowler. (Sounds like a law firm!)
Vern Kennedy, a Chicago White Sox pitcher born on this day in 1907, threw a no-no for against the Cleveland Indians at Comiskey Park on August 31, 1935.
The Cincinnati Reds’ Clyde Shoun, born in 1912, no-hit the Boston Braves at Crosley Field on May 15, 1944.
And the Philadelphia Athletics’ Dick Fowler, the only Canadian-born no-hitter thrower, threw a no-hitter against the St. Louis Browns during the second game of a September 9, 1945 doubleheader at Shibe Park. The Toronto native was born on this day in 1921.
