This is a list of no-hitters in Major League Baseball history. In addition, all no-hitters that were broken up in extra innings or were in shortened games are listed, although they are not currently considered official no-hitters. (Prior to 1991, a performance in which no hits were surrendered through nine innings or in a shortened game was considered an official no-hit game.) The names of those pitchers who threw perfect games are in bold type. For combined no-hitters by two or more pitchers on the same team, each is listed with his number of innings pitched. Games which were part of a doubleheader are noted as either the first game or second game.

An official no-hit game occurs when a pitcher (or pitchers) allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings thrown by the pitcher(s). In a no-hit game, a batter may still reach base via a walk, an error, a fielder's choice, a hit by pitch, a passed ball or wild pitch on strike three, or catcher's interference.[1] Therefore, the games listed in the Near no-hitters section do not officially qualify as no-hitters by MLB rule.

Near no-hitters[]

Regulation games in which a pitcher or staff pitches less than nine full innings, or in which a hit is allowed in extra innings, do not qualify as no-hitters. There are several circumstances in which that can occur:

Regulation no-hit losses ending in the middle of the ninth[]

Because the home team does not bat in the ninth inning when it is already leading, a visiting pitcher (or pitchers) may complete a full game without allowing a hit but not be credited with an official no-hitter because they pitched only 8 innings. This has happened four times in major-league history; three times in the modern era. [2][3]
