New York Tribune, June 22, 1916:
This was the second no-hitter in a week. Tom Hughes threw a no-no on June 16.

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, June 17, 1916:
The baseball Hall of Fame meant something different in 1916 than it does in 2016.
Anyway, Salida Tom Hughes (not to be confused with Long Tom Hughes) was frequently used out of the bullpen - the closest thing to a relief ace that you were likely to find in that era. He led the league in games pitched, games finished, and saves in 1915 while also throwing 280.1 innings, 17 complete games, and four shutouts. Hughes made 13 starts and 27 relief appearances in 1916, but clearly he had the ability to be a regular starting pitcher if George Stallings had needed one.

The game was historic before Johnny Vander Meer even threw a pitch. It was the first regular season game played under lights at Ebbets Field. The game was preceded by great fanfare. There was a fife and drum corps that marched on the field, a parade of local politicians and officials of the power company who had installed the lights, which at the time were the most powerful lighting system at any sporting venue. Olympic champion Jesse Owens performed in a series of sprinting competitions that were set up on the field, and a record crowd of more than 40,000 crammed the tiny ballpark, which seated only about 38,000. Thanks to all of the pre-game hullabaloo, the first pitch wasn’t thrown until almost nine-thirty.
Ryan’s second no-hitter of ’73 was arguably the best of his seven. He was dominant: striking out 17 Tigers batters while walking four. In the bottom of the ninth, one out away from his no-hitter, Ryan faced Norm Cash, who felt so hopeless against Ryan that he brought a table leg to the plate to face the righthander.
