Today marks the anniversary of no-hitters thrown by the the New York Yankees’ Monte Pearson (79 years) and the Chicago White Sox’s Ed Walsh (106 years).

Pearson threw his no-no against the Indians during the nightcap of a Saturday doubleheader at Yankee Stadium on August 27, 1938, with the Yankees topping Cleveland 13-0. Previous Yankees no-hitters were thrown by George Mogridge (1917) and “Sad” Sam Jones (1923).

Walsh no-hit the Boston Red Sox for a 5-0 win at Comiskey Park on Sunday, August 27, 1911, striking out eight and walking one. It marked the fourth no-hitter in franchise history, with James “Nixey” Callahan tossing one in 1902 and Frank Smith throwing no-nos in 1905 and 1908.
