Trivia
Catfish Hunter threw the first no-hitter at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum in the 11th game ever played there, marking the shortest amount of time between a park's first game and its first no-hitter. Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum has hosted three no-hitters in which more than one pitcher contributed, including two in which four pitchers contributed. Turner Field in Atlanta is the only other active park that has hosted a no-hitter in which four pitchers contributed, and only Turner Field, Fenway Park, and Angel Stadium of Anaheim have hosted other no-hitters in which multiple pitchers contributed.
