BOB FELLER April 16, 1940: Bob Feller pitches Opening Day no-hitter
The record is as unbreakable as it gets in Major League Baseball. Only once has each player on a team finished a game with the same batting average with which they started. That team was the 1940 Chicago White Sox, who entered and exited their April 16 game against the Cleveland Indians with a batting average of .000. The reason? Seventy-four years ago this week – on April 16, 1940 – Bob Feller threw the first Opening Day no-hitter in history, a feat that has never been repeated.
