Retrosheet and Baseball Reference are now recognizing a 1901 pitching gem from the Cleveland Blues’ Pete Dowling as a no-hitter.
MLB reclassification of Negro Leagues as ‘major’ could add nearly two dozen or so no-nos to the list
Major League Baseball’s long-awaited news on Wednesday that it is reclassifying the Negro Leagues from 1920 through 1948 as major should add 25 new no-hitters to the list while altering some no-hitter milestones.
The Chicago Cubs’ Alec Mills tossed the majors’ 305th no-hitter on Sunday, holding the MIlwaukee Brewers hitless for an 12-0 win at Miller Park.
The Chicago White Sox’s Lucas Giolito threw the majors’ 304th #nohitter on Tuesday, leading his squad to a 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Guaranteed Rate Field.
On May 7, 1874, The Philadelphia Athletics’ Dick McBride held the Philadelphia White Stockings to a single scratch hit for a 7-1 victory.
Four years ago today, I got to chat about no-hitters with Fran Charles and Mark DeRosa on MLB Network’s MLB Central.
