This Day in Baseball History:
April 16, 1940 > Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians hurls the first and only Opening Day no-hitter in Major League history. Feller outduels Edgar Smith of the Chicago White Sox in winning a 1-0 decision at Comiskey Park. During one at-bat, White Sox star Luke Appling fouls off 15 straight pitches, but still fails to register a hit.
