About NoNoHitters.com

Welcome to NoNoHitters.com, the online home for baseball’s 296 no-hitters.

For four-and-a-half seasons (2008-2012), this site dutifully logged the climbing count of New York Mets games without a no-hitter, which finally ended at 8,019 on June 1, 2012 when Johan Santana made history. During our four-and-a-half years chronicling baseball’s longest no-no drought from inception, we watched two of baseball’s newer franchises – the Colorado Rockies and the Tampa Bay Rays pass us on the baselines and exit the no-no club out of turn. But one team, the circa-1969 San Diego Padres, continues serve as its sole member.

We’ve expanded the role of NoNoHitters.com to focus on all things no-hitter, and we’re continuing to add a ton of new content. We still devote numerous pages to the continuing Padres streak, which you can learn about on our About our Padres pages page. We’ll keep the Padres’ no no-no count active until the Friars exit the no no-no club, and it can now be found under our Padres pages menu in the left sidebar.

You can learn about that now defunct New York Mets streak on our About Mets.NoNoHitters.com page, and we keep all of our older Mets pages archived on their own subsite at Mets.NoNoHitters.com.

  1. Great site..
    Having just watched my Cubs end their no no-hit streak, I was wondering when was the last time a LAST PLACE team threw a no hitter.

    1. Great question. My master spreadsheet is not set up to track that as I don’t have the in-season records. Would be a good one for Elias.

  2. Hi Dirk,
    How are you?
    I really like your new book on no-hitters and had fun checking out your website.
    Ever since Nolan Ryan came to my home team the Angels in a trade from the Mets in 1972, I have been a fan of power pitching and in particular no-hitters and perfect games.
    I have read just about everything on the subject and I found the way that you chose to present your book and the concept to be particularly fresh.
    BTW, in addition to no-hitters being a passion of mine, I also have been a collector of no-hit tickets and game used no-hit memorabilia.
    Currently I have tickets to 202 different official and unofficial no-hitters dating back to the early 1900’s. My collection also includes the signatures of all but 17 no-hit pitchers dating back to 1893.
    Anyway, keep up the great work. I can’t wait until you write another book related to pitching.
    Best regards,
    Scott Garner

    1. Thanks, Scott! That collection sounds impressive. I have a few ticket stubs I’ve bought on eBay and about a dozen or so autographs from no-no pitchers. Every once in a while I go online and buy a few more, but haven’t found a place to display them all yet. Perhaps I’ll open a sports bar called No-nos someday!

      1. Hi Dirk,
        Great site! I’m also a great fan of no-hitters. Always hoping for that Padres no-no, unless it’s against the Cubs. I have an extensive collection of no-hitters and perfect games on DVD. I also have a couple of large excel spreadsheets filled with no-hitter info, rosters, etc, that constantly gets updated. I’ll keep checking your site. Great work!

  3. Great site, love them no-no’s. Been going after RC’s of no-no pitchers and next day newsprint of the no-no (from 1900 on), for more than 3 decades. Keep up the great work!
