April 16, 1940 - The Indians Bob Feller no hits the White Sox winning 1-0. The game is not without controversy however. Luke Appling hits a shot down the line that apparently kicked up the chalk but was ruled foul. When Appling argued the call he was supposedly told that ĎFeller is going to be a credit to the game.í (i.e. itís good for baseball if he gets a no hitter) Incredulous Appling replied "what am I, chopped liver?" Itís the only opening day no hitter in MLB history.

April 16, 1953 - In the second game of the season, Sox starter Billy Pierce fires a one hitter in beating St. Louis 1 - 0. Itís the first of four one hitters in Billyís career. The no-hitter was broken up in the 7th inning when Bobby Young got a hit.
