Did You Know?
  • Young's perfect game was the first of the 20th century and in American League history.
  • He was 37 years old and the oldest pitcher to throw a perfect game for 100 years before 40-year-old Randy Johnson threw one against the Braves on May 18, 2004 at Turner Field in Atlanta.
  • It's the second of three career no-hitters thrown by Young (vs. Reds on September 18, 1897 at League Park III in Cleveland; vs. Highlanders on June 30, 1908 at Hilltop Park in New York).
  • This was the first of three no-hitters caught by Lou Criger (Bill Dinneen vs. White Sox on September 27, 1905 at Huntington Avenue Grounds in Boston; Cy Young vs. Highlanders on June 30, 1908 at Hilltop Park).

  • Bill Dinneen was battling a sore arm and hadn't pitched since August 31 before tossing his no-hitter.
  • Dinneen walked leadoff man Fielder Jones, who went to second on a sacrifice by Frank Isbell, then walked George Davis before he worked his way out of the jam. He hit George Rohe with a pitch with one out in the second, but that was the last White Sox batter Dinneen allowed to reach base.
  • This was the second of three no-hitters caught by Lou Criger (Cy Young vs. Athletics on May 5, 1904 at Huntington Avenue Grounds in Boston; Cy Young vs. Highlanders on June 30, 1908 at Hilltop Park in New York).
  • Five years after Dinneen tossed his no-hitter he was the home plate umpire in Chief Bender's no-hitter (vs. Naps on May 12, 1910 at Shibe Park in Philadelphia) and became the only man to both pitch a no-hitter and umpire in another.

  • Joe Wood's no-hitter came three weeks after he held the Browns hitless until the ninth inning when Burt Shotton got the Browns' only hit in a game in which Wood fanned a season-high 15.
  • Two Browns reached base three times in Wood's no-hitter--Willie Hogan walked in the second inning and was hit by a pitch in the fifth, and pitcher Joe Lake was walked in the third. Hogan made it as far as third base in the fifth when Jim Stephens sacrificed him to second and John Black grounded out, but Wood fanned Bobby Wallace to end the inning.
  • Wood faced the Browns seven times in 1911 and held them to a .128 batting average in 164 at-bats for an average of 3.86 hits per nine innings.
  • Wood's 12 strikeouts were the most by an American Leaguer in a no-hitter until Nolan Ryan fanned 17 Tigers on July 15, 1973 at Tiger Stadium in Detroit. Jim Bunning (vs. Red Sox on July 20, 1958 at Fenway Park in Boston) and Ryan (vs. Royals on May 15, 1973 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City) also fanned 12, but it took 62 years before the mark was topped.
  • This was the first of three no-hitters caught by Bill Carrigan (Rube Foster vs. Yankees on June 21, 1916 at Fenway Park in Boston; Dutch Leonard vs. Browns on August 30, 1916 at Fenway Park in Boston).
