1996 HEADLINE: Al Leiter Throws A No-Hitter For The Florida Marlins
On this day in 1996, All Leiter threw a no-hitter for the Florida Marlins!!!
I happened to have been at this game, and it is by far the single greatest sporting event I have ever seen live in person. This game easily trumps being at the World Series, The NBA Conference Finals, and any other baseball, basketball, or wrestling event I have ever been to.
I thought it would be fun to go back and review that original post I wrote over a year ago when I told you about ‘The Greatest Baseball Game I Have Ever Been To’. And then being a bit of a risk taker, I sent the ticket stub from that game along with a baseball card and sent them to Al Leiter in hopes of getting him to sign them for me. That went pretty well too…
Thanks again Mr. Leiter. And Happy Anniversary!!!
