Frank Mountain threw the second and final no-hitter in Columbus Buckeyes history, 134 years ago today.
The Montreal Expos’ Charlie Lea threw a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants, 37 years ago today.
The Montreal Expos’ Bill Stoneman no-hit the Philadelphia Phillies in just the Expos’ ninth game, 49 years ago today. The San Diego Padres, an expansion partner of the Expos, are still awaiting the team’s first no-hitter.
Today is a busy day for no-no birthdays, with Bill Stoneman turning 74, Tom Phoebus turning 76 and Ed Lafitte (1866) born on this day.
We’re sending out some no-no birthday wishes today to Bert Blyleven and Tommy Greene.
Happy 166th birthday to Ed Cushman, who threw a no-hitter for the Milwaukee Brewers of the Union Association on September 28, 1884.
