Nolan Ryan’s 7th No-Hitter: May 1, 1991
Texas Rangers’ pitcher Nolan Ryan felt every one of his 44 years early in the evening of May 1, 1991. Worse, he was about to face the hard‑hitting Toronto Blue Jays.
Ryan reportedly approached pitching coach Tom House in the clubhouse to prepare him for the worst.
“My back hurts, my heel hurts and I’ve been pounding Advil all day,” Ryan told him. “I don’t feel good. I feel old today. Watch me.”
