There are few more dramatic events in baseball-or perhaps in any sport-than a no-hitter. In the past 106 seasons, there have been 223 Major League no-hit games of at least nine innings, making the odds against such a feat approximately 1,600 to 1. The no-hitter is truly a special occurrence that has no equal on the playing field. In this book, each of modern baseball's 223 no-hitters are discussed in full. A brief profile and career record of each pitcher are given. The game is recapped, including details on how a batter reached base against the no-hit pitcher and what happened to that batter. A box score for each game is also included. A photo of almost every no-hit pitcher is provided as well. Appendices list no-hitters in which more than one pitcher participated, complete game no-hitters of less than nine innings, and no-hitters pitched before 1893 (when the mound was only 50 feet from home plate). The foreword is by Jim Bunning, who pitched two no-hitters and one of only 11 perfect games in baseball history.
