This day in baseball: All aboard the “Ryan Express”

Nolan Ryan

On this day in 1973 in Kansas City, Angels pitcher Nolan Ryan threw his first no-hitter in a 3-0 victory over the Royals.  It would be the first of seven no-hitters that Ryan would throw over the course of his career — a Major League record.  His second no-no would come only two months later against the Tigers in Detroit.
