A pair of Cleveland Indians pitchers tossed a Spring Training no-hitter against the New Orleans Pelicans — the Indians’ Class A Southern Association affiliate — 89 years ago today.
On Saturday, March 29, 1930, at Pelican Stadium, Willis Hudlin got the start and threw five innings of no-hit ball. Wes Ferrell took over in the sixth and held the Pelicans hitless through four innings to complete the no-hitter, an 11-0 victory.
Ferrell tossed a major-league no-hitter a year later. On Wednesday, April 29, 1931, at Cleveland’s League Park, Ferrell no-hit the St. Louis Browns for a 9-0 win.
