Today is the sixth anniversary of Johan Santana breaking the Mets’ no no-hitters streak at 8,019 games. As per tradition, we celebrate by repeating our original post from June 1, 2012.
The Cleveland Indians’ Dennis Eckersley threw a no-hitter against the California Angels, 41 years ago today.
The late Roy “Doc” Halladay threw a perfect game for the Philadelphia Phillies against the Florida Marlins, eight years ago today.
The Boston Red Sox’s “Bullet” Joe Bush would have notched his second no-hitter 100 years ago today if not for a bat thrown at a ball in the first inning.
Brooklyn’s Adonis Terry threw the second of his two no-hitters, 130 years ago today.
MLB’s best pitching performance occurred 59 years ago today. On May 26, 1959, the Pirates’ Harvey Haddix retired 36 Milwaukee Braves batters for a perfect game through 12 innings, but his team couldn’t score.
