Welcome to NoNoHitters.com
Major-league professional baseball has recorded 318 no-hitters in major professional baseball history (296 in the N.L. and A.L.) over its history since 1876 listed here. Less than 8 percent of those 318 no-hitters were perfect games.
There used to be more than 50 additional no-hitters on the record books until the establishment of an official definition in September of 1991, which booted rain- and darkness-shortened no-nos, no-nos lost in extras and the super-rare 8½-inning road loss no-hitters. That page also includes 7-inning doubleheader no-hitters stemming from the 2020 switch to shorter twinbills.
The San Diego Padres were the last of the current franchises to exit the no no-no club when Joe Musgrove broke that club’s 52-year curse on April 9, 2021, and the Padres’ past woes are chronicled here. The New York Mets went no-hitless from 1962 until Johan Santana’s historic accomplishment of June 1, 2012, and our chronicles of that streak can be found here.

Why the name NoNoHitters.com?
Although NoNoHitters.com over the past 13 years has blossomed into baseball’s online home for all things no-hitter, its origins are rooted in a 50-plus-year drought of no-hitters by the New York Mets.
For four-and-a-half seasons (2008-2012), NoNoHitters.com site dutifully logged the climbing count of Mets games without a no-hitter, which finally ended at 8,019 on June 1, 2012, when Johan Santana made history. During our tenure chronicling what was then 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 the Mets on the baselines and exit the no-no club out of turn. But one team, the San Diego Padres (est. 1969), surpassed the Mets’ mark in 2019 before finally notching that team’s first no-hitter on April 9, 2021 (Joe Musgrove).
