If you were born after the year that man first landed on the moon, you’ve been waiting for your entire life to get to see an Orioles pitcher toss a complete game no-hitter. Even the combined no-hitter was nearly 30 years ago. There has not been an Orioles no-hitter since Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened... until now.

On May 5, 2021, John Means made it happen at long last, and he made history in the process. His no-hitter was like no other that has ever been recorded. Means issued no walks, hit no batters, and had no runners reach by error. No other non-perfect game has been like that, until now. Only an early dropped third strike allowing a runner to reach kept him from perfection. And even that runner was thrown out trying to steal, so Means still faced the minimum for the game.

You can get in on celebrating Means’s historic accomplishment with this new design from the folks at BreakingT. This MLBPA-licensed shirt will be a good choice any time you want to remind people about the time you watched an Orioles no-hitter. It doesn’t happen every day or even every decade. The shirt is available from sizes S-3XL, with youth sizing available, as well as a women’s dolman style, and a hoodie version to keep you warm if the Orioles are playing in cold weather.
