Playbook's no-hitter pics (now with Cain!)

6/14/2012

In 2005, zero major league baseball pitchers threw no-hitters.

Since then -- including Wednesday night's perfect game from Matt Cain -- 22 no-hitters have been thrown.

We won't speculate as to why -- better pitching, lesser hitting, statistical anomaly, sun/scoreboard lights in lots of eyes.

We'll just show you shots from each no-hitter.
