Note: May 21, 2011, is the 30th anniversary of the “Greatest Pitched Game in College History” in which Yale’s Ron Darling faced future Mets teammate Frank Viola, then of St. John's University, and had a no-hitter through 11 innings.

In the 12th, SJU broke up the no-hitter and scored on a double-steal to beat Darling 1–0. The game remains the longest no-hitter in NCAA history and is considered to be the best in college baseball history.
