Frank Wickware threw a Negro Leagues no-hitter for the Chicago American Giants, 102 years ago today.
On Wednesday, August 26, 1914, Wickware no-hit the Indianapolis ABCs for a 1-0 win.
According to Wickware’s SABR bio written by Stephen V. Rice, Wickware allowed just one base runner. The ABCs’ George Shively led off the game by drawing a walk and was thrown out trying to steal second. Wickware then retired the next 26 batters for the nearly perfect game..
