Last night Corey Kluber pitched ta No-Hitter. It was the 12th No-Hitter in Yankees’ history.
In seasons when the Yankees have No-Hitters good things seem to happen.
Here is a quick list of all 12 of the Yankees’ No-Hitters:
George Mogridge (1917)
There isn’t much good to say about the 1917 Yankees who finished in 6th place with a record of 71-82. But in 1917, the Yankees weren’t a championship franchise yet.
Sad Sam Jones (1923)
The Yankees Won the World Series (their first) in 1923.
Monte Pearson (1938)
The Yankees won the World Series in 1938. This was their third consecutive (of four) World Series wins in that great period between 1936-1939.
Allie Reynolds (1951) and
Allie Reynolds (1951)
The Yankees won the World Series in 1951. This was their third consecutive (of five) World Series wins in that great period between 1949-1953.
Don Larsen (1956)
This was a Perfect Game and it occurred in the World Series, a series the Yankees won.
Dave Righetti (1983)
There are always exceptions to every rule, but in the short period around 1983, this team was the most successful. The 1983 Yankees won 91 games which bettered the 1982 (79) and 1984 (87) teams.
Jim Abbott (1993)
One could argue that 1993 was the first step in the Yankees’ dynasty of the 1990s. In 1993, they finished in second place – their highest finish since 1986. The next year, the season ended with the Yankees in first place. 1995 saw a Wild Card and 1996…
Dwight Gooden (1996)
The Yankees won the World Series in 1996.
David Wells (1998)
The Yankees won the World Series in 1998; the first of three consecutive World Series wins for the Yankees between 1998-2000.
David Cone (1999)
The Yankees won the World Series in 1999; the second of three consecutive World Series wins for the Yankees between 1998-2000.
Corey Kluber (2021)
Let’s hope that great things are on the horizon!
