I was at the Nomo no-no also. In the third inning I decided I would not move from my seat right behind home plate in front of the press box. Worked out well. My brother was with me. What a play by Mark Langston to save it.I was at the Hideo Nomo gem on April 4, 2001 in Baltimore. The friend I was with began the no-no watch in the second inning. Started as a joke, turned into a fantastic hardball memory.
Section 113 for me, so a great view of how feeble the swings were. I've rarely hugged so many strangers.Outfield seats for that game too. A whole bunch of ground outs is all I remember - too far away to appreciate the weak contact...
I was in the bleachers for this one. I remembered Anibal Sanchez started, K’d 12 in 6 innings, then the bullpen did work until Nava got a hit with one out in the 9th.Closest I've seen was game 1 2013 ALCS. Don't remember the pitcher but the Sox finally got a hit in the 9th with 1 out I think
I was at the near no-no brawl in St. Pete. It was Daubach they kept throwing at.The only notable games I've seen in person were such for reasons other than pitching: Sammy Sosa's three three-run home runs in consecutive ABs in Denver, and a multi-brawl Red Sox game in that warehouse in St. Petersburg when they threw at (IIRC) Ortiz and maybe Manny.
I was also at the Hideo Nomo no-hitter in Baltimore. I was sitting with a bunch of O's fans and getting ribbed a bit for my Red Sox cap. This was, I think, a bit before Camden reached its peak of Red Sox fans a few years later, so while there were plenty of Sox fans, it was by no means a majority. I had been sick the week before and was actually nursing laryngitis. I almost didn't go and, once I got there, I realized I wouldn't be able to use my voice cheer. This became a big issue later in the game, obviously. I was using sign language to try to explain to some of my laypeople friends the significance of what was happening.I was at the Hideo Nomo gem on April 4, 2001 in Baltimore.

I remember more from that game than I remember from the no-hitters. You’re right — it was nine electric innings.I’ve never attended a no hitter. The best pitched game I’ve been to was Pedro vs the Braves 6/4/99. He struck out 16, the only run he gave up was a HR by Ryan Klesko. His game score was 91. I’ve never been to a game where the crowd was so electric.
My fault for being off-topic since it was nothing close to a no-no, but I was referring to this game. Jay Payton grand slam after replacing the ejected Trot Nixon, Manny getting thrown at then homering on the next pitch, fights and ejections all around.I was at the near no-no brawl in St. Pete.

i was at this one too. thanks for the memory.Hideo Nomo has a game I was at which is always under the radar. He faced only 28 batters but the hit occurred in the top of the 4th. What a performance. I don't remember why but I was in the 600/.406 club and it was a great time.
I was at that game too. I always thought it was bizarre that Os fans fled the ballpark so by the end it was pretty much a Sox home game. It's a NO HITTER people!!!I was at the Hideo Nomo gem on April 4, 2001 in Baltimore. The friend I was with began the no-no watch in the second inning.

Wakes had two near no hitters in '95; I was at the other one, in Minneapolis, on July 9. He lost it in the 8th but still won a complete game shutout.
I went to that game too. Only game close to a no no I can remember being at.6/19/70 - Sonny Siebert took a no-hitter into the 9th inning against the New York Yankees. He gave up 4 hits and 4 runs before Sparky Lyle finished off a 7-4 Sox win.
What I remember about the Schilling game was it was damn hot in the Coliseum bowl, and this guy in front of us in a Millar jersey (!) who came about halfway through the 5th and spent most of the time talking to his girlfriend standing up in the bottom of the 9th. It seems insane but nobody, even Red Sox fans, on the 1st base side was standing. Too baked.Decided to study for a midterm instead of attending what was ultimately Nolan Ryan's 6th no-hitter in Oakland.
Was at Schilling's game against the A's when he was one out away and decided to shake off Varitek.
I went to the Friday night game in Oakland this year where the Sox came back and won on Moreland's grand slam. I decided to stay home the next day and missed Manaea's no-no against us.
A buddy of mine took his 4 year old to his first ever game a few years ago, and it ended up being Matt Cain's perfecto in SF. He got a certificate from the Giants to commemorate it.
I was on the Monster for this one (I chose it over Game 2...oops). I've never seen a stadium so ready to explode as Fenway was that night, but it just never came. If you think about it, with it being a 1-0 game, the tying or winning run was at the plate for 16 straight at-bats. So much pent up energy that didn't get released that night.Closest I've seen was game 1 2013 ALCS. Don't remember the pitcher but the Sox finally got a hit in the 9th with 1 out I think
Here's the setlist if you want to relive it.Turned down my cousin's extra ticket to what turned out to be Derek Lowe's no-hitter. Midnight Oil was playing a free show that afternoon at the Hatch Shell, I'd always liked them but I've never seen them live before and I figured I wouldn't miss much vs. Tampa so why not catch the show instead? My uncle took the ticket and I'm glad he did. He was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's a couple years later while he was still in his fifties and he passed away a decade after that following a long, brutal decline. Means more to me that he got to see it while he still had some faculties than if I'd seen it. Even if Midnight Oil turned out to be a much more low-energy live band than I'd hoped for.
