Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"George Joseph Mullin, whose name is bracketed with the best pitchers the Detroit Tigers ever had, died today at Wabash, Ind., at the age of 62. Mullin, a hard-working pitching ace of the managerial era of the colorful Hughie Jennings , was a 20-game winner five seasons with Detroit . No other Tiger has had more than three seasons. He also was a heavy hitter, batting .262 for 11 full seasons with Detroit . He was a sort of Schoolboy Rowe of grandpa's day, only he was much more durable than Schoolboy ." - AP Wire (The Escanaba Daily Press, 01/08/1944, 'TIGER PITCHING GREAT PASSES', Page Eight)

Did you know that George Mullin pitched the first no hitter in franchise history for the Detroit Tigers ? Did you know Wabash George was born on the 4th of July and pitched the no-hitter on the 4th of July? Baseball Almanac is honored to present this exclusive description of that historic no-hitter researched and written by author Rich Westcott ( RichWestcott.com / Rich Westcott Books ), original text from No-Hitters (McFarland, 02/15/2000, 'George Mullin', Page 67):
George Mullin No Hitter
George Mullin No Hitter | The Washington Post | July 5, 1912

George Mullin No Hitter (July 4, 1912 / Tigers 7 vs Browns 0)

George Mullin was on the downgrade in 1912 and had a 6-7 record for Detroit when he faced the eighth-place St. Louis Browns in the afternoon game of a morning-afternoon doubleheader on Thursday, July 4, before 5760 fans in Navin Field. The sixth-place Tigers , who won the opened, 9-3, were opposed by rookie Willie Adams in the afternoon.

Mullin opened the game by walking Burt Shotton . Heinie Jantzen sacrificed him to second, but Joe Kutina bounced to the box and Del Pratt grounded to second.

The Browns had Mullin in trouble in the second when second baseman Bill Louden fumbled Frank LaPorte's grounder and Jimmy Austin walked. Then followed an unusual play. Trying to bunt, Happy Hogan popped one to right to Mullin, who wheeled and threw to first baseman George Moriarty , trying to double Austin . The latter slid back just in time but Moriarty's relay to shortstop Donie Bush doubled LaPorte off second. Austin then stole second, but Jim Stephens popped to short.

Thereafter, Mullin retired the Browns in order until, with one out in the sixth, he walked Shotton again. Burt was called out stealing and Jantzen was easily retired. The Browns went out in order in the seventh, but Austin walked to start the eighth, taking three balls in a row and then two strikes. Bash Compton batted for Hogan and lined a 3-2 pitch to right center that looked like a certain hit until center fielder Ty Cobb raced over and pulled it down after a hard run. Stephens followed with another liner which Cobb caught, and Manager George Stovall , batting for relief pitcher Earl Hamilton , closed the frame with an easy grounder to second.

The ninth was even more trying for Mullin. He walked Shotton for the third time, failing to get the ball over once. Jantzen lined to right center and again Cobb saved Mullin with a fine catch. Kutina lifted a fould which catcher Oscar Stanage grabbed near the stands for the second out, and not it was up to Pratt .

Concentrating on the batter, Mullin allowed Shotton to steal second unmolested on the first pitch, a wide one, to Pratt . The second pitch was also wide but Del hit the third on a line to deep center. Cobb went back and caught it easily to end the game.

The Tigers had touched Adams for a run in each of the first three innings. Ossie Vitt scored the first, reaching base on shortstop Pratt's fumble, stealing second, taking third as Cobb was safe on an error and scoring as Sam Crawford was being thrown out by Pratt .

In the second, Louden walked with one out and scored on Mullins' two-out double. Bush and Cobb stared the third with singles and the bases were loaded when Sam Crawford was hit by a pitch. Jim Delahanty's sacrifice fly to center scored Bush, but Cobb was nipped at the plate.

The Tigers jumped on reliefer Al Mitchell for four runs in the eighth as Cobb and Crawford singled, Delahanty doubled, and Louden , Stanage and Mullin singled, the pitcher's third hit of the game. Vitt lined to Pratt , who doubled Stanage off second to end the rally.

Mullin finished the season with a 12-17 record.

H.G. Salsinger, The Detroit News, 01/10/1944, wrote an article called "Mullin was a braniac on the mound" and said, "Mullin had an excellent fast ball and a good curve but most of his success was due to smartness rather than stuff." ow smart on the mound was he? The George Mullin obituary we quoted at the top of the page was written in 1944, and mentioned that Mullin had the most 20-win seasons in Detroit . As of today, no Detroit Tigers pitcher has matched that total and only Hall of Famer Hal Newhouser got close, winning twenty with Detroit four times.

A modern Detroit Tigers pitcher did actually break one of George Mullin's records - one hundred four years after it was set! In 1909, Mullin was selected as the Opening Day pitcher, and did not disappoint, tossing a 1-hitter, his first win of the year, and one of eleven straight record setting victories. Fast forward to 2013, and a Tiger named Max Scherzer won his first game on June 28, then twelve more in a row, the best start in Detroit history, and a 13-0 mark not seen in baseball history since Roger Clemens won his first thirteen games in 1986.
