  1. The only one I’m not familiar with is Frank Smith.

  2. It’s interesting that any no-talent yahoo can put together a no-hitter: Bobo Holloman, Mike Warren, Philip Humber. However, to get two or more usually requires a much higher quantum of pitcher. Most of these guys were top pitchers in their day, even if less remembered by today’s blogosphere whose collective memory stretches back no further than Ken Griffey Jr.s prime.

    The exception to this is clearly Homer Bailey. 58 career wins (and probably no more, since his recovery from the Tommy John appears to have derailed), two of them being no-hitters? I would never have guessed.

    My favorite on this list is Trucks; both of his were in the same season, when he went 5-19 overall (one of those was a gift from a last-minute scoring change turning a hit into an error, but it still counts in the books).

  3. Yeah, Frank Smith threw me too. I know the Reds had a pitcher by that name in the Fifties but don’t think this is the guy. I think there was a Frank Smith in the deadball era. Indians? White Sox? Some AL team.

    Dutch Leonard was a puzzler but only concerning which one. Don’t think it was the Senators P from the Forties because I don’t know if a knuckleballer has ever thrown even one no-hitter (sort of ironic because a knuckler that’s really working is only hittable by luck). More likely the Dutchman who pitched for the Red Sox and Tigers who had a pretty active hatred of Ty Cobb..

  4. I found a Frank Elmer Smith who pitched from 1904-15. His stats are are very good. Perhaps he his are guy.

  5. Yes, that Frank Smith (http://www.baseball-almanac.com/players/player.php?p=smithfr03)-he pitched for the White Sox, including the 06 Hitless Wonders, and then several other teams, and had 139 wins in his career.
