Today is the only day on the calendar in which we can celebrate multiple perfect games, with Dennis Martínez and Kenny Rogers both tossing July 28 perfectos.
Ramón Martínez threw a no-hitter for the Los Angeles Dodgers, 25 years ago.
The Brooklyn Grooms’ Tom Lovett threw a no-hitter against the New York Giants, 129 years ago today.
The Philadelphia Phillies’ Jim Bunning tossed a Fathers Day perfect game against the New York Mets, 56 years ago today.
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw threw a no-hitter against the Colorado Rockies six years ago today.
Today is the 82nd anniversary of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Vander Meer’s amazing accomplishment of tossing the second of two back-to-back no-hitters. In part 6 of 6 in our series, we look at the last of the “other” no-hit starts – Rex Barney.
