American League No-Hitters

Every No-Hit Game Thrown in the American League

Words alone cannot describe pitching's second highest "club" and still one of the most desirable goals — a no-hitter. These elusive gems are masterpieces of a career on the mound and a mystical feat that must be witnessed to be fully appreciated.

Tossing a complete game with no-hits are all that is required to join this elite group of American League pitchers. A group we here at Baseball Almanac truly appreciate and hold in the highest regard during a day and age when the home run is king.

baseball almanac fast facts

Eighteen years pass between Nolan Ryan's first and last no-hitter making this the greatest span of time to occur between a pitcher's first and last no-hitter.

On May 6, 1953 , Bobo Holloman became the first pitcher during the twentieth century to throw a no-hitter during his first Major League start.

Did you know that Bob Feller was the first pitcher from the twentieth century to hurl three ( Game 1 | Game 2 | Game 3 ) no-hit games?
