Happy 40th birthday to Johan Santana, the man who ended the New York Mets’ no no-hitters streak and passed the torch to the San Diego Padres. @johansantana
Happy 62nd birthday to former Oakland Athletics pitcher Dave Stewart, who threw a no-hitter in Toronto in 1990.
Two pitchers who threw no-hitters – Christy Mathewson, and Walter Johnson – were voted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame 83 years ago today.
Happy 74th birthday to Tom Seaver, who threw a no-hitter for the Cincinnati Reds after thrice losing no-nos in the ninth for the New York Mets.
Four MLB pitchers threw no-nos on this date, with the oldest occurring 106 years ago by the St. Louis Browns’ Earl Hamilton.
Happy 138th birthday to Christy Mathewson, the Hall of Famer who pitched two no-hitters for the New York Giants.
