Description:
Fred Toney (December 11, 1888 - March 11, 1953), of Nashville, Tennessee, was an American right-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs, Cincinnati Reds, New York Giants and St. Louis Cardinals from 1911-1923. His career record was 139 wins, 102 losses, and a 2.69 earned run average. Toney twice won 20 games in a season (1917, 1920) and also led the National League in saves in 1918.

Toney is best remembered for his participation in what the record books used to refer to as a "double no-hitter". On May 2, , at the ballpark now known as Wrigley Field, Toney dueled with Hippo Vaughn of the Chicago Cubs for 9 hitless innings. In the top of the tenth, the Reds scored on a couple of hits after Vaughn had retired the first batter, while Toney continued to hold the Cubs hitless in the bottom of the inning, winning the game for the Reds. With changes to the scoring rules in recent years, this game is no longer considered as a no-hitter for Vaughn; but it is still the only occasion in major league history in which a regulation nine innings was played without either team logging a hit.
