Red Sox pitcher Foster no-hits Yankees, 99 years ago today
Boston Red Sox hurler George “Rube” Foster threw a no-hitter against the New York Yankees, 99 years ago today.
Foster on Wednesday, June 21, 1916 no-hit the Yankees for a 2-0 win at Fenway Park. He had been throwing a perfect game until issuing a walk in the seventh inning, and he walked two more before completing the no-no.
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.
