Perhaps 2018 will be another year of the pitcher, as Major League Baseball is opening its season on Cy Young’s birthday.
Happy birthday to Lon Warneke, who threw a no-hitter for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1941.
A pair of Pittsburgh Pirates pitchers combined to no-hit the Los Angeles Dodgers in a Grapefruit League matchup, 52 years ago today.
Happy 166th birthday to Ed Cushman, who threw a no-hitter for the Milwaukee Brewers of the Union Association on September 28, 1884.
Happy 57th birthday to former Oakland Athletics pitcher Mike Warren, who tossed a no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox at Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum on September 29, 1983.
Larry McKeon and Charlie Geggus, the earliest no-hitter throwers to have their games tossed off the official list, were both born on this date.
