Happy birthday to no-no throwers Lavender, Warren

Before the day ends, a quick note of birthday wishes to two no-hitter throwers – the Chicago Cubs’ Jimmy Lavender and the Oakland Athletics’ Mike Warren.

Lavender, born on this date in 1884, tossed his no-no against the New York Giants in the first game of an August 31, 1915 doubleheader at the Polo Grounds.

Warren, who turns 54 today, threw his against the Chicago White Sox at Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum on September 29, 1983.
