April 16, 2018

On this day in 1940, the Cleveland Indians’ Bob Feller pitches his first no-hitter. He went on to throw two more no-hitters in his career; only two other pitchers in baseball history have recorded more no-hitters: Nolan Ryan (7) and Sandy Koufax (4).  Feller, who grew up playing catch with his father on his family’s farm in Iowa, made his major league debut at just 17 years old with the Cleveland Indians on July 19, 1936. His overpowering fastball quickly established him as a strikeout king. In September of his rookie year, in a game against the Philadelphia Athletics, he struck out 17 batters. On October 2, 1938, in a game against the Detroit Tigers, the “Heater from Van Meter” struck out 18 players and set a major league record for strikeouts in a single, nine-inning game.  How will you contribute to history? Make it a great day… or not. The choice is yours.
