Cleveland Indians pitcher Wes Ferrell threw a no-hitter against the St. Louis Browns and helped his cause with a homer, 88 years ago today.
Bill Hawke tossed a no-no for the NL Baltimore Orioles, and Tom Browning threw a perfecto for the Cincinnati Reds.

Happy birthday to two no-no pitchers, Bill Singer and Howard Ehmke.
