Dom Boerger Throws a No-Hitter

Sunday, June 19, started out as a special day because it was Father’s Day. It turned out to be extra special for Dom Boerger and the Milbank Firechiefs. Boerger threw a no-hitter against the Clark Traders. He recorded 17 strikeouts and walked only one batter in the seven innings he pitched. To help put that in perspective, according to Baseball Almanac, only 316 no-hitters have been thrown in major league games from July 1876 to May 2022.
