  • William Glenn McCahan (June 7, 1921 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – July 3, 1986 in Fort Worth, Texas) was an American professional baseball player who played pitcher in the Major Leagues with the Philadelphia Athletics from 1946 to 1949. As a rookie on September 3, 1947, McCahan no-hit the Washington Senators 3-0 at Shibe Park. With one out in the second inning, Athletics' first baseman Ferris Fain, after fielding a routine ground ball, threw wildly to McCahan, covering first base. Stan Spence of the Senators made it all the way to second base, the only blemish on McCahan's otherwise perfect game. McCahan had been on the losing end of the last no-hitter prior to this one, pitched by Cleveland Indian Don Black on July 10 of that same season; not until Tim Lincecum in 2013 would a pitcher hurl a no-hitter after being on the losing end of the last no-hitter before it. McCahan's no-hitter would also be the last for the Athletics until Catfish Hunter's perfect game in 1968; by this time, the franchise had moved to Oakland. McCahan also played professional basketball for the Syracuse Nationals of the National Basketball League. His interment was located at Fort Worth's cemetery Greenwood Memorial Park. (en)
