The Cleveland Indians’ Dennis Eckersley threw a no-hitter against the California Angels, 38 years ago today.
Eckersley on Monday, May 30, 1977 at Cleveland Stadium walked just one batter as the Indians topped the Angels 1-0. Eckersley, who also pitched for the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs and Oakland A’s, now does some studio work for NESN.
Dirk Lammers is a veteran journalist who began rooting for the New York Mets in the early-1970s when the team’s no no-hitter count was barely 2,000 games old. Lammers has since turned his research into Baseball’s No-Hit Wonders: More Than a Century of Pitching’s Greatest Feats (Unbridled Books) and NoNoHitters.com, where he maintains the Internet's largest archive of no-hitter information.
