It is no secret that the New York Mets have never hurled a no-hitter. At least, not while wearing a Mets uniform.
Unless something changes tonight, the Mets will have a total of 7580 regular season games and 47 postseason games without ever recording a no-hitter.
While three other teams have never accomplished the feat either, their no-hit futility has not endured as long.
The San Diego Padres (1969), the Colorado Rockies (1993), and the Tampa Bay Rays (1998) are the three other teams which comprise the foursome.
However, the Mets haven't thrown one since their inception in 1962. This despite being a franchise known more for its pitching and defense than hitting.
It must be recognized that there have been 33 no-hitters thrown by former Mets, and 14 pitchers have accomplished the feat who at one time or another played in a Mets uniform.
