The Brooklyn Dodgers’ Carl Erskine and the Kansas City Royals’ Steve Busby threw no-hitters on this date.

Today is the 75th anniversary of the Cincinnati Reds’ Clyde Shoun’s no-hitter against the Boston Braves, the no-no witnessed by the smallest crowd in the past century.
Today is the 100th anniversary of the Cincinnati Reds’ Horace “Hod” Eller’s no-hitter against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Padres have just 5 more chances to avoid reaching the Mets’ record for no-hit futility. Three of those games will be played at Coors Field, where the Padres are 1 of just 4 teams to allow one hit or less.
