William Glenn McCahan (June 7, 1921 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – July 3, 1986 in Fort Worth, Texas) was an American professional baseball player who played pitcher in the Major Leagues from 1946 to 1949.
As a rookie on September 3, 1947, he threw a no-hitter for the Philadelphia Athletics against the Washington Senators. With one out in the second inning, Athletics' first baseman Ferris Fain, after fielding a routine ground ball, threw wildly to McCahan, covering first base. Stan Spence of the Senators made it all the way to second base, the only blemish on McCahan's otherwise perfect game.
McCahan also played professional basketball for the Syracuse Nationals of the National Basketball League. His interment was located at Fort Worth's cemetery Greenwood Memorial Park.
