Happy 124th birthday to Earl Hamilton, who threw a 1912 no-hitter for the St. Louis Browns.
Hamilton on August 30, 1912 no-hit the Tigers for a 5-1 victory at Navin Field.
The Detroit ballpark hosted another no-hitter with the same teams just a month and a half earlier, but the roles were reversed. On July 4, 1912, the Tigers’ George Mullin, no-hit the Browns for a 7-0 win.
