This Day In Yankees History 4/24

On this day in 1917 the Yankees/Highlanders first no hitter was thrown by left hander George Mogride. We would beat the Red Sox 2-1 in Fenway Park. Not only was this the first no hitter in franchise history but it was also the first ever thrown in Fenway.

On this day in 1923 the first shut out ever thrown in Yankees Stadium was thrown against the Washington Senators. President Warren G. Harding was in attendance and saw Babe Ruth launch a home run in the 4-0 Yankees victory.
