I just realized that every year we (of course) celebrate the anniversary of Johan Santana’s no-hitter, the first for the New York Mets, and often neglect the other two thrown on this date.

On Tuesday, June 1, 1937, The Chicago White Sox Bill Dietrich no-hit the St. Louis Browns for an 8-0 win at Comiskey Park.

And on Sunday, June 1, 1975, the California Angels’ Nolan Ryan no-hit the Baltimore Orioles for a 1-0 win at Anaheim Stadium. It was Ryan’s fourth no-hitter of an eventual seven career no-hitters, tying the then major-league record set by Sandy Koufax.
