Some two dozen no-hitters were thrown in the Negro Leagues between 1920 through 1948, but whether all of these make the official MLB record books remains unknown.
Negro Leagues star Bill Drake threw a no-hitter for the All Nations barnstorming team against the Sioux Falls Soos, 98 years ago today.
The Boston Red Sox’s “Smokey” Joe Wood and the Cincinnati Reds’ George Culver threw no-hitters on this date.
The Buffalo Bisons’ “Doc” Amole threw an Opening Day no-hitter in the inaugural game of the newly rebranded American League, 119 years ago today, but the new circuit wasn’t yet considered part of the major leagues.
Happy 86th birthday to “Mr. Baseball” Bob Uecker, who once played in a no-hitter.
Happy 36th birthday to Ubaldo Jimenéz, who tossed the only Colorado Rockies no-hitter in 2010.
