The Best MLB Pitchers With Multiple No-Hitters

Updated September 3, 2019 1.3k votes 95 voters35 items

List RulesVote up pitchers who threw multiple no-hitters with the best overall careers.

All 35 pitchers who have thrown more than one no-hitter have accomplished something special. A no-hitter by itself is a remarkable achievement that requires a combination of skill and luck. Two or more no-hitters can make for an all-time career.

Some of the best major league pitchers of all time, such as Sandy Koufax, Warren Spahn, and Cy Young, are on this list. Nolan Ryan, who struck out more batters than any other pitcher in history, is the career leader with seven no-hitters, well ahead of Koufax's second-place four.

The list features 11 Hall of Famers already, and pitchers like Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander, among the best pitchers in baseball right now, are likely to join them in the future.

But which of these pitchers with multiple no-hitters on his resume had the best overall career? Which is the best of the best?
