Sal Maglie and Mike Scott

Two major league pitchers who share the same birthday threw no-hitters on this date.

Sal “The Barber” Maglie, born April 26, 1917, threw a Brooklyn Dodgers no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies at Ebbets Field on Tuesday, September 25, 1956, for a 5-0 win.

The Houston Astros’ Mike Scott, born April 26, 1955, no-hit the San Francisco Giants at the Astrodome on Thursday, September 25, 1986, to clinch the National League West division with a 2-0 victory.


  1. Another one. Is Jim Perry the only pitcher to be on the losing end of three no-hitters tossed against him? Lost to Vida Blue and the A’s on Sept. 21, 1970, when he was with the Twins, and lost twice in 1973 when he was with the Tigers: April 27 to Steve Busby and the Royals and July 15 to Nolan Ryan and the Angels.
