Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians has an Opening Day for the ages, throwing a No-Hitter to beat the Chicago White Sox 1-0 at Comiskey Park, striking out eight batters on the way. To date, it is the only Opening Day No-Hitter in MLB history. It would be the first of three No-Hitters in Feller’s career, which was the record at the time of his retirement.
