Bob Feller’s 75-year-old record of throwing baseball’s only Opening Day no-hitter will not be tied with an Opening Night no-hitter.

The Chicago Cubs Jon Lester gave up a first-inning double to Jason Heyward, and the St. Louis Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright gave up a Dexter Fowler leadoff double to left.

Feller threw his no-no on April 16, 1940 on a day when all 16 teams were in action. He struck out eight as the Cleveland Indians topped the Chicago White Sox 1-0 at Comiskey Park.

Of course the rest of the major league teams are in action on Monday, so an Opening Day no-hitter could still be in the cards, it just technically wouldn’t be thrown on baseball’s Opening Day.
