Browns No-Hit Trivia on Today's Date

1917 — Bob Groom of the Browns duplicated teammate Ernie Koob's feat of the previous day by pitching a 3-0 no-hit victory against the Chicago White Sox in the second game of a doubleheader in St. Louis.
1953 — Bobo Holloman of the St. Louis Browns pitched a 6-0 no-hitter against the Philadelphia Athletics in his first major league start. He never pitched another complete game in the majors.

  1. Bobo's no-hitter was also the first Browns no-hitter at home since Bob Groom's no-hitter. Even the Cardinals had only had one home no-hitter during that span. No-hitters were more of a rarity then.
