Today would be the 131st birthday of Jeff Tesreau, who threw a no-hitter for the New York Giants back in 1912 thanks to what could have become known as the Merkle-Wilson boner.
Happy 128th birthday to Charles “Dazzy” Vance, who threw a no-hitter for the Brooklyn Robins in 1925.
The St. Louis Browns threw an 8 1/2-inning Spring Training no-hitter against the Boston Braves but lost, 72 years ago today.
