On This Day In Baseball History: May 2, 1923

Walter Johnson


Walter Johnson throws his 100th career shutout as his Washington Senators beat the New York Yankees 3-0. Johnson will toss ten more shutouts before his career is over bringing his career total to 110. His 110 career shutouts is the most in MLB history by 20. It’s a different game today than it was during Johnson’s career but for comparison there are only six active players with ten or more career shutouts with Tim Hudson having the most, 13. Johnson was one of the five inaugural inductees.
