Feller’s Second No-Hitter Arguably His Best No-Hitter

May 1, 2020 |

The end of April has been a notably busy time for no-hitters in Cleveland Indians history. Did The Tribe Win Last Night looks back at the second time Bob Feller achieved this milestone of pitching history in 1946 in a story originally published by Bob Toth on April 30, 2016. – BT

Indians Hall of Fame hurler Bob Feller stunned the New York Yankees at home by throwing his second of three career no-hitters on April 30, 1946.

It was a remarkable feat for Feller, who added his name alongside Addie Joss as the only members of the Cleveland franchise to ever throw two hitless outings in their careers. He would later take that crown all for his own when he threw his third and final no-hitter on July 1, 1951, against the Detroit Tigers, adding it to the first he threw in his career with his memorable Opening Day no-hitter on April 16, 1940 (still the only such game thrown in MLB history).

Most pitchers aren’t even lucky enough to claim one no-hitter, so the notion that Feller had multiple to compare just lays credence to his abilities as a pitcher and his well-deserved spot among the baseball immortals in Cooperstown, New York. Read More

Robinson, Feller Shared Complicated, Connected Bond

April 17, 2020 |
