    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/20/12 — Will Lucas (LLWS No-Hitter)

    Being called upon to pitch in a nationally televised elimination game is enough to make a Major Leaguer nervous.  So one could only imagine the feeling going on in Will Lucas’ stomach when the 12-year-old righty was called upon to take the mound for Fairfield, Connecticut during their Little League World Series elimination game against […]

    11 Worst No-Hitters Of All Time

    If someone said to you, “real quick, what’s the ultimate achievement for a pitcher,” you’d probably answer that it’s a no-hitter.
