No-hitters … by Major League Baseball franchise (all-time)

Here’s the breakdown by franchise of the 283 no-hitters over professional baseball’s 130-plus year history. The page ranks the teams by no-hitters thrown, and it also lists them in order of no-hitters thrown against a franchise.

Every Major League Baseball franchise has been no-hit at least once, but just one is void of having their own no-hitter: the San Diego Padres.
