Happy 59th birthday to Arizona Diamondbacks General Manager Dave Stewart, who threw a no-hitter for the Oakland Athletics in 1990.

On Friday, June 29, 1990, Stewart no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays for a 5-0 victory at the Skydome. Hours later and thousands of miles away, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Fernando Valenzuela no-hit the St. Louis Cardinals for a 6-0 win at Dodger Stadium.

The games marked only the second time that no-hitters were thrown on the same day. The other two were back in 1898:

Ted Breitenstein
  Cincinnati Reds (NL)
  Friday, April 22, 1898
Cincinnati Reds 11, Pittsburgh Pirates 0
League Park (Cincinnati)
Jim Jay Hughes
  Baltimore Orioles (NL)
  Friday, April 22, 1898
Baltimore Orioles 8, Boston Beaneaters 0
Union Park (Baltimore)
