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.
Frank Viola and Corey Bailey teamed up to throw a Grapefruit League no-hitter for the Boston Red Sox, 25 years ago today.
Jeff Tesreau, who threw a no-hitter for the New York Giants back in 1912, was born 130 years ago today.
Happy 131st birthday to Grover Cleveland “Ol’ Pete” Alexander, one of the greatest pitchers not to throw a no-hitter.
