The Most Recent No Hitter For Each Franchise (Updated for April 21, 2012)



Of COURSE it was Phillip Humber who throws the first no hitter of the year. With all the aces in the bigs, it was a guy with 11 career wins who gets to inch his name into history.

Mark Buehrle, you are no longer on the board unless you throw your THIRD no hitter (and this time with the Marlins.)


Let's update the list.

  2. I was vacationing with my family in Williamsburg, Virginia the night Len Barker threat the first perfect game of my lifetime. Good place to experience history. Years later I found out somebody wrote, "How could it be perfect? It was in Cleveland."

    I was in Williamsburg again 28 years later when the Yankees beat the Red Sox to clinch an AL East title.

  5. Finding the best franchise opportunities is not a very easy task. It is true that there are many options to choose from, but the difficulty is, which
    one to select. The internet has emerged as a powerful medium and feeds the web users with exhaustive and relevant information regarding any topic that they want to know about. Franchising has proved effective for those business holders who have been able to make a good choice for observing a steady business growth. Before making a thorough search over the internet in order to grab the best franchise opportunities, it is crucial that you do some homework trying to assess things for yourself.
