Addie Joss Tosses A No-hitter

April 20, 1910. Addie Joss of the Cleveland Naps  no-hit the Chicago White Sox 1-0, on Oct. 2, 1908, he had pitched a perfect game against Hall of Famer Ed Walsh of the White Sox. He became the first pitcher to no-hit the same team twice. It was a feat that wouldn't be duplicated again until Tim Lincecum of the Giants no-hit the Padres in 2013 and again in 2014. Joss was 160-97 with an ERA of 1.89. He died tragically at 31, on April 14, 1911 from tuberculous meningitis. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1978 be the Veteran's Committee.
