32_jackstivettsJack Stivetts threw a no-hitter for the Boston Beaneaters, 124 years ago today.

On Saturday, August 6, 1892, in front of 7,107 fans at Brooklyn’s Eastern Park, Stivetts no-hit the Brooklyn Grooms for a 11-0 win. Stivetts walked five, and two Grooms reached base on Boston errors.

The “Waterloo defeat,” according to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, did not leave Brooklyn “even the sorry excuse of crying out that they ‘were robbed of the game by their umpire.'”
