The 2021 MLB Season has featured four no-hitters already and we haven’t even hit the month of June. To ponder how rare and this occurrence truly is, we will look back at the ten greatest no-hitters in MLB History.
Johan Santana No-Hits the Cardinals at Citi Field (2012)
Clayton Kershaw’s Almost Perfect Game at Dodger Stadium (2014)
Charlie Roberston Achieves Perfection Against the Detroit Tigers (1922)
The San Diego Kid No-Hits the Rangers (2021)
Dock Ellis’ Acid Trip is a No-Hitter Against the Padres (1970)
Forty Year Old Randy Johnson is perfect against Atlanta (2004)
Johnny Vander Meer Throws Back to Back (1938)
King Felix is Perfect for the First Time in Mariners History (2012)
Roy Halladay Rewrites History in the Postseason (2010)
Roy Halladay is one of only two players in MLB history to throw a No-Hitter during the Postseason. Halladay’s No-Hitter also ended the Phillies’ horrible luck with No-Hitters. Truly historic.
Don Larsen Throws a Perfect Game in the World Series (1956)
Don Larsen is not only the only player to ever throw a perfect game during the Postseason but he is also the only one to do it during the World Series. This pitching performance is the greatest of all time simply because of the ramifications. To retire all twenty-seven batters while under immense pressure to bring home a championship has never been replicated again. And may never be.
