Today is the 101st anniversary of baseball’s only double nine-inning no-hitter. The Chicago Cubs’ Hippo Vaughn and the Cincinnati Reds’ Fred Toney each held their opponents hitless through nine innings of baseball at Weeghman Park on Wednesday, May 2, 1917.
The Philadelphia Athletics’ Al Atkinson no-hit the New York Metropolitans, 132 years ago today.
