Did You Know?
  • The only Red Sox player to reach base in Ed Walsh's no-hitter was Clyde Engel who walked in the fourth inning.
  • Walsh's no-hitter came less than two weeks after he tossed a one-hitter against the Detroit Tigers, the only hit being an infield single by Oscar Stanage that caromed off Walsh's glove.
  • Walsh's no-hitter was somewhat marred by an outfield collision that knocked Red Sox center fielder Tris Speaker and right fielder Olaf Henriksen from the game in the third inning when they ran into each other while chasing down a fly ball by White Sox shortstop Lee Tannehill. Once play was suspended both benches emptied and rushed to the players' aid with members of both teams helping a shaken-up Henriksen off the field.
  • Tannehill and second baseman Amby McConnell were particularly good on defense, especially Tannehill who grabbed Bill Carrigan's eighth-inning grounder behind second base and threw the Red Sox catcher out by "half an inch."
  • Walsh required a police escort after the game so he could navigate his way through more than 1,000 cheering fans.

Did You Know?
  • Opposing pitcher Abe Bowman was making only his third career appearance and first start when Joe Benz threw his no-hitter.
  • Cleveland scored its run in the fourth inning when Roy Wood reached second on Buck Weaver's two-base error, went to third when third baseman Scotty Alcock dropped Weaver's throw on Rivington Bisland's grounder, then scored on Jack Graney's double play grounder.
  • This was the first of three no-hitters caught by Ray Schalk (Eddie Cicotte vs. Browns on April 14, 1917 at Sportsman's Park III in St. Louis; Charlie Robertson vs. Tigers on April 30, 1922 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit).

Did You Know?
  • Vern Kennedy was a rookie making only his 22nd major league start when he threw his no-hitter.
  • He walked four--Eddie Phillips in the third inning, Roy Hughes in the sixth, Joe Vosmik in the seventh, and Earl Averill in the ninth--but only Hughes, who forced Phillips in the third and stole second, got past first base.
  • Left fielder Al Simmons saved Kennedy's no-hitter with one out in the ninth inning when he raced in from left-center field and made a diving grab of Milt Galatzer's "twisting" liner.
  • Kennedy drove in three of the White Sox's five runs when he belted his first career triple with a bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth.
  • Kennedy finished his no-hitter by striking out the American League's leading hitter, Joe Vosmik, who was batting .350 and narrowly missed a batting title when he finished the season at .348, one point behind Buddy Myer's .349.
  • This was the second of three no-hitters caught by Luke Sewell (Wes Ferrell vs. Browns on April 29, 1931 at League Park IV in Cleveland; Bill Dietrch vs. Browns on June 1, 1937).

Time of Game: 1:48
Did You Know?
  • Bill Dietrich was one of the least likely pitchers to throw a no-hitter--60% of his career games to that point came as a reliever, he had a 5.38 ERA in 588 2/3 innings, and he lost his previous start 15-3 when the Indians touched him for 10 runs in 3 1/3 innings on May 29.
  • Because he threw so few innings against Cleveland, Dietrich started against the Browns on only two days rest.
  • Dietrich received all the run support he needed in the first inning when the White Sox scored three runs on two hits, including Dixie Walker's two-run double, and four walks by Chief Hogsett, including one to Luke Sewell with the bases loaded.
  • Dietrich retired the first 15 batters and was perfect through five innings before he walked Rollie Hemsley to lead off the top of the sixth.
  • He also walked pitcher Russ Van Atta with two outs, but the only other St. Louis runner to reach base was Beau Bell, who reached first in the top of the seventh on an error by third baseman Tony Piet.
  • In his next two starts following his no-hitter, Dietrich allowed 11 runs on 18 hits and 10 walks in 15 2/3 innings against the Athletics and Red Sox, respectively.
  • This was the third of three no-hitters caught by Luke Sewell (Wes Ferrell vs. Browns on April 29, 1931 at League Park IV in Cleveland; Vern Kennedy vs. Indians on August 31, 1935).

Attendance: 14000
Time of Game: 2:24
Did You Know?
  • This was the only Opening Day no-hitter in history, but two prior no-hitters were thrown on an earlier date (Rube Marquard vs. Robins on April 15, 1915 at at Polo Grounds V in New York.; Eddie Cicotte vs. Browns on April 14, 1917 at Sportsman's Park III in St. Louis), and several others were thrown at earlier dates post-1940.
  • The White Sox's final batter, Taffy Wright, hit a hot smash to the left of second baseman Ray Mack, but Mack knocked it down, corraled the rolling ball, and threw Wright out to end the game.
  • The official scorer later admitted that he would have scored it an error had Mack not made the play, but Feller insisted he would have scored it a hit.
  • The White Sox put five runners on base via four walks and an error, but Feller retired 20 straight batters before walking Luke Appling on 10 pitches with two outs in the ninth.
  • This was the first of three career no-hitters thrown by Bob Feller (vs. Yankees on April 30, 1946 at Yankee Stadium I in New York; vs. Tigers on July 1, 1951 at Cleveland Stadium).

  • When Keegan made his major league debut on May 24, 1953 against the Tigers he was two months shy of his 33rd birthday and 37 when he threw his no-hitter.
  • He fanned only one batter---pinch-hitter Julio Becquer---and that didn't come until the ninth inning.
  • In his previous three outings, including two starts, Keegan had allowed 11 hits in five innings before finally taking manager Al Lopez's advice to slow down his motion.
  • In his last eight appearances of the season, Keegan held batters to a .183 batting average.

Plate Umpire: Bill McKinley
Attendance: 17185
Time of Game: 2:24
Did You Know?
  • Only a walk to Al Smith with two outs in the second inning kept this from being a perfect game.
  • Prior to Monbouquette's no-hitter, he had allowed at least one earned run in 16 consecutive starts dating back to May 9 against the Yankees, and only once had he allowed no runs of any kind and that was against the Indians in his first start of the season on April 11.
  • Monbouquette, a native of Medord, Massachusetts, was named honorary mayor of Medford for the month of August and Mayor John J. McGlynn named August "Bill Monbouquette Month" in Medford.
  • This was the first of two no-hitters caught by Jim Pagliaroni (Catfish Hunter vs. Twins on May 8, 1968 at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum).
