Sending 151st birthday wishes out to Ben Sanders, who threw a no-hitter for the Louisville Colonels on Monday, August 22, 1892.

The Colonels that day beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 in a game played at Louisville’s Eclipse Park.

Both ball clubs finished near the bottom of the National League standings in 1892, with the Colonels posting a 63-89 record and the Orioles faring much worse at 46-101.
