Today is the 19th anniversary of MLB’s earliest regular-season no-hitter.
On Wednesday, April 4, 2001, during the Boston Red Sox’s second game of the season, Hideo Nomo no-hit the Baltimore Orioles for a 3-0 win at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The Cleveland Indians’ Bob Feller threw baseball’s only Opening Day no-no, but it came on Tuesday, April 16, 1940.
Nomo’s no-hitter against Baltimore was his second no-no. On Tuesday, September 17, 1996, when Nomo was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers, he no-hit the Colorado Rockies for a 9-0 win at Coors Field.Feature photo キャッチボール開始 by Ryosuke Yagi under Creative Commons license CC-BY-2.0
