Happy birthday today to two no-no throwers: Tom Browning and Bill Hawke.
The Houston Colt .45’s Ken Johnson threw a no-hitter and lost, 54 years ago today.
The Chicago Cubs’ Jake Arrieta no-hit the Cincinnati Reds, two years ago today.
Fred Frankhouse, a Dodgers pitcher who threw an eight-inning no-hitter but is not included in the official record books, was born 114 years ago today.
Perhaps 2018 will be another year of the pitcher, as Major League Baseball is opening its season on Cy Young’s birthday.
Happy birthday to Lon Warneke, who threw a no-hitter for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1941.
