Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 5-8-2017

Harrisburg Telegraph, May 8, 1917:

The no-hit game pitched by Bob Groom, of the St. Louis Browns, against the Chicago White Sox [May 6] is the fourth one of the present baseball season.

This makes an early-season record for the number of no-hit games pitched. The other hitless games of the year were as follows

Cicotte of the White Sox against the Browns on April 14.
Mogridge of the Yanks against the Red Sox on April 24.
Toney of Cincinnati against the Cubs on May 2.

Groom’s no-hitter was actually the fifth of the season. Somehow the writer of this article missed that the Browns no-hit the White Sox TWICE IN TWO DAYS. Ernie Koob was the author of a no-no on May 5, 1917.

There was one more no-hitter to come in 1917, and it’s (in my opinion) the most famous no-no of the decade.
