Today is the 60th anniversary of Jim Bunning’s first no-hitter.
On July 20, 1958, while pitching for the Detroit Tigers, Bunning threw his first of two no-hitters by blanking the Boston Red Sox 3-0 during the first game of a doubleheader at Fenway Park. He threw his second with the Philadelphia Phillies — a Father’s Day perfecto against the New York Mets in 1964.
Also throwing no-nos on this day are the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Bill Singer and the Brooklyn Superbas’ Mal Eason.
Singer threw his on July 20, 1970, against the Philadelphia Phillies at Dodger Stadium for a 5-0 win. On July 20, 1906, Eason no-hit the St. Louis Cardinals for a 2-0 win at Robison Field.
