The Philadelphia Athletics’ Al Atkinson no-hit the Pittsburgh Alleghenys (Pirates), 132 years ago today.

On Saturday, May 24, 1884, in an American Association match-up at Philadelphia’s Recreation Park, Atkinson notched his first-of two no-nos for a 10-1 victory.

The right-hander from Clinton, Illinois, who also played outfield for the A’s, threw his second no-no against the New York Metropolitans at Jefferson Street Grounds on Saturday, May 1, 1886.
