On this day in 1973, Nolan Ryan threw his 1st of 7 ‘No-Hitters’!!! Who knew what was to come… none of us did, but I am sure glad that it did!!!
I cannot think of another pitcher that is as synonymous with 1 baseball related achievement the way that Nolan Ryan is tied to the phrase ‘No-Hitter’. Like Peanut Butter and Jelly, and Macaroni and Cheese, Nolan Ryan and ‘No-Hitter’ are linked forever.
The stat line from the game is an impressive one: 9 innings pitched, 12 strikeouts, 3 walks, and of course 0 hits!!
Congratulations Mr. Ryan!!!
