NoNoHitters.com was created by veteran author and journalist Dirk Lammers, a New Jersey native who began rooting for the New York Mets in the early-1970s when the team’s no no-hitter count was barely 2,000 games old. In 2016, Lammers turned his comprehensive research into the book Baseball’s No-Hit Wonders: More Than a Century of Pitching’s Greatest Feats.
Lammers, who has spent much of his career writing for The Associated Press and The Tampa Tribune, tapped his love of baseball in 2008 to create NoNoHitters.com and begin tracking the Mets’ quest for the team’s first no-hitter. For 4½ years, Lammers dutifully added to the growing game count after each contest’s inevitable first hit, tweeting out the new number and the hitter responsible. That all changed on June 1, 2012, when southpaw Johan Santana finally accomplished the feat for the Mets after 8,019 regular season games. (See news coverage of the site here.)
NoNoHitters.com has since evolved into the online gathering point for all things related to no-hitters, including Negro Leagues no-hitters, international pitching gems and the San Diego Padres’ quest for that team’s first no-no, which ended in 2021. Lammers is a member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).
I saw your book on netgalley and was very impressed with it!! I already requested it and hope you allow me to review it! I’m a huge Baseball Fan and this book is so exciting to me
Thanks so much, Sandi! From what I understand from my publisher, it should be available on NetGalley soon. Glad you’re looking forward to it and I’d love to hear what you think.
Is there a book signing with the author this week in Tampa? I’d like to attend.
Hi. There is one Wednesday, March 16 at Love’s Artifacts Bar and Grill,4918 S MacDill Ave, starting at 5:30 p.m.
I wanted to mail something to you (the old-fashioned way!)… what address should I use? I enjoyed your book immensely!
Thanks, Tim. Just emailed you.
Saw you on MLB Network. Might you be interested in coming to Cape Cod to do a lecture and book signing? Contact me to discuss further.
We have a Craig Lammers in our baseball trivia group. Any relation?
Very unlikely, though feel free to tell him I said, “Hi”!
Hey Dirk- I’m an Indians fan and they’ve been no hit twice this year. With this offense I expect it again. I’m trying to find the record for most no hitters thrown against a team in 1 season? Could you help on that one?
Two is the record, though the Indians share that record with 17 other teams.
Thanks so much! What is the fewest amount of days between no hitters for a team?
The St. Louis Browns’ Ernie Koob and Bob Groom threw ones against the White Sox on May 5 and 6, 1917, though they weren’t consecutive because of a doubleheader opener fell in between them.
You need to add the new no no thrown by the RA12 team Ricardo Velez vs the Criollos de Caguas and LOST.
Last week so you are aware and add it when you can.
That’s added. Thanks for passing it along!
