Major League Baseball Sanctioned No-Hitters
From BR Bullpen
Note: For games that fit the MLB's previous definition of a no-hitter but no longer do, click here.
In 1991, Major League Baseball clarified its definition of a no-hitter to be "a game in which a pitcher, or pitchers, gives up no hits while pitching at least nine innings. A pitcher may give up a run or runs so long as he pitches nine innings or more and does not give up a hit." The following is a list of the 288 games that fit the definition.
Included in this list is the single no-hitter thrown in the National Association. The NA has at times been considered a major league, and at times not. It was undoubtedly the first professional league, and Joe Borden's no-hitter is included here if only for sake of continuity.
