The 1917 Cincinnati Reds season was a season in American baseball. The team finished fourth in the National League with a record of 78-76, 20 games behind the New York Giants.

Regular season[edit]

The Reds acquired legendary athlete Jim Thorpe. After returning to the Giants in early 1917, he was sold to the Reds early in the season.

On May 2, in the "double no-hitter" between Fred Toney of the Reds and Hippo Vaughn of the Chicago Cubs, Thorpe drove in the winning run in the 10th inning.[1] Late in the season, he was sold back to the Giants. It is still the only occasion in major league history in which a regulation nine innings was played without either team logging a hit.
