    Couple notes:

    a) Maddux would have been on this list if they had called the game after six innings last night. Obviously, they finished it.

    2) Because of Fay Vincent's 1991 ruling, these no-hitters are not recognized by Major League Baseball. I tend to agree with that ruling. So these don't show up in the Total Baseball encyclopedia or baseball-reference.com, or anywhere else. Here's a link to the <a href="http://www.baseball-almanac.com/pitching/pinohit2.shtml">National League ones</a> and here's a link to the <a href="http://www.baseball-almanac.com/pitching/pinohit1.shtml">American League ones</a>. Just scroll down toward the end.

    III) I did not include the seven pre-1900 incomplete no-hitters that were pitched in the National League. It's on the NL list I linked to, though. Ed Stein's the biggest name of those, so that's not much.

    quatro) Fun facts: Notice that of the six instances that an incomplete no-hitter has been pitched in the NL since 1910, two of those came during a three-month span in 1959. Also, notice that of the seven instances that an incomplete no-hitter has been pitched in the AL since 1910, two of those came during a two-week span in 1990. And in one of those, the pitcher (Hawkins) lost the game (<a href="http://www.retrosheet.org/">box score here</a>). Cool, huh?

    5) I'm a nerd. :D

    Palmer was perfect in his 5 innings in '84. I remember it led nearly every sportscast. First (at least at the time) perfect game since Len Barker, I believe.

    He was on my roto team, too, for a cup of coffee and an English muffin with enough cream cheese for 6 English muffins. Then when I realized he was only sitting at the counter nursing his now-cold coffee and nibbling at the generic cream cheese, I yanked that goddam English muffin out of his pathetic pitching hand and told him to get the hell off my team and out of my life forever.

    And yet he's on the goddam Los Angeles Dodgers. Pathetic.

    Wonder if this in any way prepared Palmer to be president.
