5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for baseball fans & sports history buffs., June 4, 2000
This review is from: No-Hitters: The 225 Games, 1893-1999 (Paperback)
No-Hitters: The 225 Games, 1893-1999 discusses each no-hitter baseball game, including a brief profile and career record of each pitcher. Each game is recapped, with details on what happened to that batter. A box score for each game is also featured, as is a photo of almost every no-hit pitcher. No-Hitters is enhanced for the baseball enthusiast with appendices that list no-hitters in which more than one pitcher participated; complete game no-hitters of less than nine innings; and no-hitters pitched before 1893 (when the mound was only 50 feet from home plate). An informative foreword by Jim Bunning (who pitched two no-hitters and one of the only eleven perfect games in baseball history) is a true informational treasure for the baseball fan. No-Hitters is a highly recommended addition to personal, school, sports bar, and community library baseball reference book collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unparalled no-hitter reference volume, December 20, 2007

This review is from: No-Hitters: The 225 Games, 1893-1999 (Paperback)
Rich Westcott & Allen Lewis went above and beyond in compiling all the pertinent data on each of the baseball no-hitters thrown from 1893 (the time when the pitching mound was moved to its current 60' 6" from the plate) through 1999. Each no-hitter's box score is included as well as a comprehensive narrative about each, including the date and day of the week, the ballpark it happened at, and even the size of the crowd. A photo of almost all of the pitchers who threw the no-hitters accompanies each entry (with the exception of the 4 Federal League pitchers who tossed no-nos). The back of the book has four informative appendices : A) Combined No-Hitters , B) Eight-Inning No-Hitters, C) No-Hitters pitched before 1893, & D) No-Hitter Facts & Figures. The last of which is loaded with info such as first no-hitters by team, pitchers with multiple no-hitters, and no hit anomalies (most and fewest walks, strikeouts, etc). This 418 page book is packed with stats and facts presented in an enjoyable and concise fashion and I would highly recommend it to any fan of the game or stats hound. A great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly wonderful book!, August 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: No-Hitters: The 225 Games, 1893-1999 (Paperback)
Westcott & Lewis have compiled a wonderful record of every no-hitter and perfect game from 1893 to 1999 in an easy to read, stat-filled format that has you riveted every time you pick it up to read. The research that went into this book is amazing and baseball fans will love the use of box scores to document every game as well as the potted histories of each pitcher who made his piece of baseball history. This is a gem of a book and i hope a revised and updated version will be released soon to cover the "no-no's" that have happened since 1999!
