A perfect game for Len Barker! The stands erupt, the players go out, Len Barker being surrounded on the field. He has made baseball history here tonight. Len Barker has pitched a perfect ball game.

It has now been 37 years since Len Barker lifted his leg high and tight on a 1-2 pitch to Toronto Blue Jays catcher Ernie Whitt, inducing a fly ball to center field. Rick Manning raced in, arms extended straight out as though he were flying. He raised both arms above his head and he secured the catch before beginning his ascent to the mound with several high hops in celebration of the 27th and final out of Barker’s perfect game.

Only Landis’ Imperiousness Kept Feller, Henrich from Being Teammates

May 2, 2018 |

Seventy-two years ago this week, Bob Feller became just the second pitcher in Indians history to throw multiple no-hitters, getting his second no-no against the Yankees.

To finish it off, he had to go through the meat of the Bronx Bombers’ lineup, including Tommy Henrich, nicknamed “Ol’ Reliable” by longtime Yankees broadcaster Mel Allen for his ability to deliver in the clutch.

But it’s entirely possible that Feller and Henrich could have been teammates – possibly in Cleveland OR New York. Read More

Remembering Bob Feller’s Opening Day No-Hitter

April 16, 2018 |

Many accomplishments in Major League Baseball history have come and gone, to be expected on some level with the 162-game schedule and 30 teams competing on a nightly basis for six months of the year. Yet some records and performances have withstood the test of time and somewhat surprisingly, Bob Feller’s Opening Day no-hitter remains one of them.

It was on April 16, 1940, that Feller started the regular season with the first and only no-hitter in baseball history. Despite 39 Cleveland modern openers before it and the 78 openers that have followed, the historic effort has yet to be replicated. Read More
