Welcome to NoNoHitters.com
There used to be more than 50 additional no-hitters on the record books until the establishment of an official definition in September 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-’21 experiment with 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 team’s 52-year curse on April 9, 2021, and the Padres’ past woes are detailed 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 No NoHitters.com?
Although NoNoHitters.com over the past 15 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 (March 31, 2008-June 1, 2012), NoNoHitters.com dutifully logged the climbing count of Mets games without a no-hitter, which finally ended at 8,019, 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).
