We added some new pages to our site today:
- Our No hitters officially recognized by baseball page lists the 235 sanctioned no-hitters in Major League history. In September 1991, baseball’s Committee on Statistical Accuracy changed the official definition of the feat, saying, “A no-hitter is a game in which a pitcher or pitchers complete a game of nine innings or more without allowing a hit.” That dropped 50 games off the record books.
- Our Close, but no cigar: No-hitters not officially recognized page lists the 50 former no-hitters stricken from the record books, and more recent ones that would have qualified under the old rules. The list includes games that lasted less than nine innings and ones in which the pitcher held a no-hitter through nine but lost it extra innings.
- Our Mets minor league no-hitters tries to list the no-hitters accomplished by the New York Mets’ AAA, AA and A affiliates. This is a meant as a work in progress and will likely never be 100 percent complete, but the point is to show it can be done while wearing a Mets uniform.
