Gary Peters(19-8) thrilled the fans at Comiskey Park as he crafted a no-hit

masterpiece against the Wiesbaden Vikings.  The red-hot Kansas City Athletics

won by a final score of 9 to 1.

 

Peters was just too much for Wiesbaden.  He walked 3 Wiesbaden batters.  The

tension was mounting with every inning after the 6th.  Peters appeared

oblivious himself to the mounting history until two were out in the 9th.

Only then, did he allow himself one deep sigh and a slow trip around the

mound.  Peters whiffed an impressive total of 12 Wiesbaden batters.  Kansas

City had a total of 13 hits for the game. 

 

The losing pitcher was Mike McCormick(3-13).  He pitched 1 and 2/3 innings

giving up 4 hits and 1 walk. Peters was in a jubilant mood after the game.

'If I'd known I was going to throw a no hitter I would have gotten a

haircut!' he said, much to the delight of the clubhouse gathering.

 

 1961
Rookie Hurler Don Schwall of the expansion Atlantic City Diamond Aces pitched the ninth no hitter in AARBL history when he shut down the Des Moines Dusters 4-0.

History was made in Atlantic City as Don Schwall(5-1) tossed a no-hitter and

the Atlantic City Diamond Aces defeated the Des Moines Dusters by the score

of 4 to 0.

 

Schwall was just too much for Des Moines.  He gave his hometown fans a game

they'll never forget! He walked 5 Des Moines batters.  What an evening for

the fans.  They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on.  With

every out, the electricity in the air mounted.  Atlantic City managed 8 in

their victory. 

 

Warren Spahn(5-4) absorbed the loss.  After the game, Schwall was heard to

say, 'This is something I have dreamt about since I was a little boy - to

have it come true is just amazing!'

Carolina fans certainly got their money's worth at Seals Stadium.  Milt

Pappas(8-9) pitched a rare no-hitter as the Carolina Grays toppled the

Potomac Fighting Dems 2 to 0.

 

Pappas was spectacular.  He walked 2 Potomac batters.  The Carolina players

and coaches started to leave Pappas alone with his thoughts after the game

reached the 7th inning.  By the time the 9th inning rolled around, you could

hear a pin drop every time he went to his wind-up - and an explosion after

every out.  Carolina had just 6 hits for the afternoon. 

 

Robin Roberts(8-15) took the loss.  He gave up 6 hits and 1 walk in 8 innings.

'Pappas made us look bad' Chris McMurry said. 'I've seen a lot of good

performances in my time and this one will be tucked away in my memory bank

for a long time to come' b-0

History was made in Potomac as Robin Roberts(3-1) tossed a no-hitter and the

Potomac Fighting Dems defeated the Kansas City Athletics by the score of 5 to

0.

 

Roberts had an evening to remember.  Heck, it's one we'll all remember! What a

game at Griffith Stadium! He walked 3 Kansas City batters.  What an evening

for the fans.  They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on.

With every out, the electricity in the air mounted.  Potomac totaled 10 on

the night. 

 

Jim Owens(4-1) was given the loss.  He gave up 5 runs and 10 hits in 7

innings.  'You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this

happening,' said Roberts, 'I don't expect it to sink in for awhile,' he said.

'I'm numb right now, I'm overwhelmed.'

 

 1956
Phase 8 Phase of the 1956 season produced the sixth no-hitter in AARBL history.  It was thrown by Lew Burdette of the Des Moines Duster against the Carolina Grays on August 4, 1956 in an 8-0 Des Moines win.

Lew Burdette(12-11) thrilled the fans at Memorial Stadium as he crafted a

no-hit masterpiece against the floundering Carolina Grays.  The Des Moines

Dusters won by a final score of 8 to 0.

 

Burdette was obviously at the top of his game as he set the Carolina batters

down like so many dominoes.  He only walked one Carolina batter.  The tension

was mounting with every inning after the 6th.  Burdette appeared oblivious

himself to the mounting history until two were out in the 9th.  Only then,

did he allow himself one deep sigh and a slow trip around the mound.  Des

Moines rapped out 8 hits for the night. 

 

Don Kaiser(3-12) took the loss. After the game, Burdette was heard to say,

'This is something I have dreamt about since I was a little boy - to have it

come true is just amazing!'

 

Phase one of the 1956 season produced the fifth no-hitter in AARBL history.  It was thrown by Connie Johnson of the Butte Stompers against the Alexandria Rock Hounds on April 11, 1956 in a 9-0 Butte win.

History was made in Alexandria as Connie Johnson(2-0) tossed a no-hitter and

the Butte Stompers defeated the Alexandria Rock Hounds by the score of 9 to

0.

 

Johnson had an evening to remember.  He only walked one Alexandria batter.

The Butte players and coaches started to leave Johnson alone with his

thoughts after the game reached the 7th inning.  By the time the 9th inning

rolled around, you could hear a pin drop every time he went to his wind-up -

and an explosion after every out.  Butte banged out 11 on the night. 

 

Paul Foytack(1-2) was given the loss.  He was hit hard and gave up 11 hits and

5 walks in 5 and 1/3 innings.  'Johnson was simply incredible' losing pitcher

Foytack said.  'I hate to admit this but I'd pay to watch a man pitch like

that'

History was made in Fremont as Murray Dickson(8-7) tossed a no-hitter and the

Fremont Fear defeated the lifeless Alexandria Rock Hounds by the score of 16

to 0.

 

The partisan crowd cheered every Alexandria out from the 7th inning on.  He

walked 3 Alexandria batters.  The tension started to build around the 6th

inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.  Fremont lit up the

scoreboard in the 3rd inning when they had 7 runs on 6 hits and the 4th

inning when they had 4 runs on 4 hits.  Fremont rapped out 18 hits for the

afternoon. 

 

Mike Garcia(8-14) was the loser.  He was touched for 11 hits and 2 walks in 3

innings.  'Dickson was simply incredible' losing pitcher Garcia said.  'I

hate to admit this but I'd pay to watch a man pitch like that'

 


Phase two of the 1955 season produced the third no-hitter in AARBL history.  It was thrown by Chet Nichols of the Fremont Fear against the North Bend Tadjers on April 25, 1955 in a 3-0 Fremont win.

Chet Nichols(2-1) was on top of his game in North Bend as he tossed a beauty

of a no-hitter against the North Bend Tadjers.  The Fremont Fear won by a

score of 3 to 0.

 

Nichols was obviously at the top of his game as he set the North Bend batters

down like so many dominoes.  He walked 4 North Bend batters.  The tension

started to build around the 6th inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was

electrified.  The North Bend batters went down meekly in the bottom of the

9th. 

 

Ned Garver(1-5) was given the loss.  'You probably have a better chance of

winning the lottery than this happening,' said Nichols, 'I don't expect it to

sink in for awhile,' he said. 'I'm numb right now, I'm overwhelmed.'


 1954
Phase two of the 1954 season saw the first two no-hitters in AARBL history.  Both were thrown on the same day (5/7/54), the first by Bob Turley of the Butte Stompers against the Wilmington Hornets, and the second, by Bob Porterfield of the Peoria Chiefs against the division rival Carolina Grays.

Wilmington fans certainly got their money's worth at Wrigley Field.  Bob

Turley(6-2) pitched a rare no-hitter as the Butte Stompers toppled the

Wilmington Hornets 8 to 0.

 

Turley was obviously at the top of his game as he set the Wilmington batters

down like so many dominoes.  He walked 5 Wilmington batters.  What a day for

the fans.  They were on the edge of their seats from the 7th inning on.  With

every out, the electricity in the air mounted.  Turley recorded 11

strikeouts.  Butte had a total of 12 hits for the game. 

 

Billy Pierce(0-3) was the loser.  He allowed a few too many baserunners giving

up 8 hits and 5 walks in 4 and 2/3 innings.  'Turley pitched one heck of a

game!' Jim Nancarrow said.  'He didn't get away with any bad pitches because

he just didn't throw any bad pitches.  What a performance!'

History was made in Peoria as Bob Porterfield(3-1) tossed a no-hitter and the

Peoria Chiefs defeated the Carolina Grays by the score of 1 to

0.

 

Porterfield gave the home town fans an evening that they'll never forget.  He

walked 6 Carolina batters.  The tension started to build around the 6th

inning.  By the 9th inning the crowd was electrified.  Peoria had 8 hits for

the night. 

 

John Antonelli(1-3) was the losing pitcher.  It was a tough loss for him as he

did not allow an earned run in his 7 innings of work. 

 

It took a while to pry Porterfield way from his teammates as they all wanted

to show their appreciation and joy.  Finally, however, Michael Tricarico got

to offer his own congratulations with a big bear hug and the comment, 'That

was one of the best pitched games I have seen in all my years in baseball -

Porterfield was masterful out there tonight!'
