Today would be the 129th birthday of William ‘Dizzy’ Dismukes, who threw a no-hitter for the Indianapolis ABCs in 1915.
On Sunday, May 9, 1915, no-hit the Chicago American Giants at Northwestern Park for a 5-0 win. Only two runners reached base, one on a hit batsman and one on an error, according to newspaper accounts, and Dismukes pitched 1-2-3 innings in seven of the nine frames.
