Seven of Nolan Ryan's caps signifying his seven no-hitters in the Baseball Hall of Hame.

Seven of Nolan Ryan’s caps signifying his seven no-hitters in the Baseball Hall of Hame.

The powers that be recognize 287 sanctioned no-hitters in major professional baseball history (264 in the N.L. and A.L.), although there used to be some 50 more of the accomplishments in the record books. (Click here for the list of the games once considered no-hitters but now unrecognized.) Nolan Ryan holds the record with seven no-hitters over his career.

In September 1991, baseball’s Committee on Statistical Accuracy, chaired by then MLB Commissioner Fay Vincent, changed the official definition of the feat, saying, “A no hitter is a game in which a pitcher or pitchers complete a game of nine innings or more without allowing a hit.”

Major League Baseball also doesn’t recognize a July 28, 1875, National Association no-hitter pitched by the Philadelphia Athletics’ Joe Borden against the Chicago White Stockings, as MLB considers its history to begin with the 1876 formation of the National League. A possible 1876 no-hitter thrown by Borden when he was with the Boston Red Caps was unearthed in 1950 by baseball historian Lee Allen, but there’s still some dispute over whether the two men who reached base during the 9-0 win over the Cincinnati Red Stockings did so through base hits or walks.

Here are the no-hitters recognized by Major League Baseball:

Vic Willis Aug. 7, 1899 NL Boston Beaneaters 7 Washington Senators 1
There’s some doubt if this game truly was a no hitter, but it’s officially recognized as one. According to the book “Ghosts in the Gallery at Cooperstown: Sixteen Forgotten Members of the Hall of Fame” by David L. Fleitz, six Senators reached base in the game on four walks, a hit batsman and a slow roller by opposing pitcher Bill Dineen that third baseman Jimmy Rollins couldn’t handle. All four of Boston’s newspapers declared it a hit, but the New York Times and Sporting Life ruled it an error – thus making Willis’ performance a no hitter. Sporting Life ran a correction ruling it a hit a week later, but the game has been recorded in history as a no hitter.
