AMERICAN ASSOCIATION NO-HITTERS

Every No-Hitter in the American Association (Official & Un-Official)

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 Association 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.
