Did You Know?
  • Callahan's no-hitter was the first in American League history and it came on the first annual Amateur Day at South Side Park in Chicago, which featured a parade of amateur players, a brass band, and Chicago baseball legend Cap Anson serving as marshal.
  • Callahan's no-hitter was delayed in the seventh inning when the procession of 200 amateur baseball players reached the park and marched to the grandstand.
  • Callahan went on to become a full-time player and was the White Sox's left fielder when teammate Frank Smith threw his no-hitter exactly six years later (vs. Athletics on September 20, 1908 at South Side Park III in Chicago).
  • This was the second of three no-hitters caught by Ed McFarland (Red Donohue vs. Beaneaters on July 8, 1898 at Baker Bowl in Philadelphia; Frank Smith vs. Tigers on September 6, 1905 at Bennett Park in Detroit).

Did You Know?
  • Jesse Tannehill hit leadoff man Danny Green with a pitch and walked cleanup hitter George Davis, but retired the remaining White Sox batters in order for the final 8 1/3 innings.
  • White Sox second baseman Gus Dundon almost broke up Tannehill's no-hitter in the eighth inning when he smashed a shot at Tannehill, who redirected it towards second when he tried to stop the ball with his pitching hand and Hobe Ferris picked it up and threw out a diving Dundon.
  • Green came close to breaking up the no-hitter as well when he shot a grounder over second base in the ninth inning, but shortstop Freddy Parent speared the ball on the run and fired a perfect strike to first baseman Candy LaChance to nab Green.
  • White Sox third baseman Lee Tannehill went 0 for 3 against his brother.

Attendance: 15,000
Time of Game: 1:30
Did You Know?
  • This was the second of two career no-hitters thrown by Frank Smith (vs. Tigers on September 6, 1905 at Bennett Park in Detroit).
  • The game was a scoreless tie until the White Sox plated the winning run in the bottom of the ninth against Eddie Plank, who was almost as brilliant as Smith, having allowed only three hits to that point.
  • Frank Isbell led off the inning with his second hit of the game, stole second and went to third on a passed ball. Plank intentionally walked George Davis, then attempted to do the same to Freddy Parent, but Parent reached out on a 2-0 count, somehow tapped a grounder to second and Isbell beat the throw home for the winning run.
  • Both stars of the game were playing with injuries--Smith had a stiff and sore finger on his pitching hand after trying to stop a line drive in his last start, and Isbell had a sprained ankle, making his trip around the bases in the ninth even more remarkable.

  • Because all but three balls were hit on the infield, first baseman Nap Lajoie recorded 19 putouts and Addie Joss had 10 assists.
  • White Sox shortstop Freddy Parent was credited with a hit in the second inning when he rolled a grounder to third baseman Ed Bradley who muffed it, but the official scorer later changed it to an error.
  • This was the second of two career no-hitters thrown by Joss (vs. White Sox on October 2, 1908 at League Park III in Cleveland) and both were against the White Sox.
  • Joss is the first pitcher to throw multiple no-hitters against the same team and is one of three. Tim Lincecum threw no-hitters against the San Diego Padres on July 13, 2013 at Petco Park in San Diego and June 25, 2014 at AT&T Park in San Francisco; Justin Verlander tossed no-hitters against the Toronto Blue Jays on May 7, 2011 and September 1, 2019, both at Rogers Centre in Toronto.
  • Joss is also the first pitcher in baseball history to account for the two most recent no-hitters and one of five to do it (Johnny Vander Meer, 1938; Allie Reynolds, 1951; Nolan Ryan in 1973 and 1974-1975; Homer Bailey 2012-2013).
  • Joss made only 10 more career starts and 11 appearances after his second no-hitter because of a torn ligament in his elbow that cut his 1910 season short and tubercular meningitis that tragically took his life in 1911.
  • Parent played in six no-hitters with the Red Sox and White Sox from 1904-1910.
  • This was the second of two no-hitters caught by Nig Clarke (Addie Joss vs. White Sox on October 2, 1908 at League Park III in Cleveland).
  • Among no-hit pitchers, Joss' career .968 WHIP is the best.
