This day in baseball: Cy Young’s third no-hitter

At Hilltop Park in New York on June 30, 1908, Cy Young of the Red Sox no-hit the Highlanders (now the Yankees) in a 8-0 victory.  At the age of 41, it was the third time that Young had accomplished the feat, and he was the oldest pitcher to have done so until Nolan Ryan’s no-hitter on June 11, 1990.

      1. Yes, definitely the age. Remarkable. Pitching in general is hard to comprehend, almost a miracle. I remember my arm throbbing after a couple of hours of catch and I was in my early 20’s!
