“Life can throw a fastball at 100 mph, but you are the only one who decides to swing or pass it.” Anonymous “
Ukrainian writer Leonid S. Shorkok has made a significant contribution to this decision. “Life is judged not by time, but by the memory of the special moment in which we live.”
You can apply this notion of time and life to baseball to emphasize that no game is the same as any other game, but there are exceptions to all the rules.RELATED
Let’s take a look at these two facts where the author is the pitcher himself.
Mark Buehrle’s No-Hit No Run in 2007 and Perfect Game in 2008 show two coincidences.
On Wednesday, April 18, 2007, left-handed Mark Buehrle retired from the first four innings in turn and walked Sammy Sosa five times in the US Cellular Field, a match between the Texas Rangers and the White Sox. The first and the rest were total domains. The walk kept him away from the perfect match.
It ended 6-0, lasted 2:03 hours, was attended by 25,390 fans, and the main referee was Eric Cooper.
On Thursday, July 23, 2009, in the same US Cellular Field, Buehrle won the perfect game with Tampa Bay with a 5-0 scoreline.
The match between these two feats is that both games lasted exactly 2:03 hours and were the same Eric Cooper, in addition to the fact that the referee who called the ball and strike was on the same stage.
Matching time, place, and judgment is very difficult to match and you wouldn’t even think about exceeding it.
A day like today
In 1954, the Eastern Star of San Pedro de Macoris defeated Tigres del Licei 8-7, and Cara Obracho completed a complete game to win the green. The offensive hero was Rafael-El Cavalero-Valdes, who scored 9 RBIs.
In 1958, Orlando Cepeda hit his third home run in three days, Felipe Alou’s RBI hit his ninth, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Atlanta Braves 6-5. San Francisco is currently leading the Braves in half-games.
In 1965, the Giants pitcher Juan Marichal was the only Dominican to be selected for the Minnesota All-Star Game.
In 1976, in Philadelphia, the National League defeated the American League 7-1 and Caesar Cedeño hit Frank Tanana in the eighth inning.
In 1995, José Lima made her debut with the Detroit Tigers facing an angel.
In 1997, Pedro Martinez, with a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius, beat the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 to complete a one-hit shutout. The ace of the Montreal Expos allowed Bret Boone to single in the fifth inning with the only hit allowed.
In 1999, at Fenway Park, local favorite Pedro Martinez struck out five of the six NL batters he faced to win the MVP’s honor. Classic 4-1. At the first pitch ceremony, Hall of Fame outfielder Ted Williams runs down the field in a convertible car and the game starts 15 minutes late. Players from both teams will pay homage to the original Red Sox star.
In 2021, the American League won the National League in Coors Field, Denver eight times in a row, winning the 91st edition of the All-Star Game 5×2. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. won the Ted Williams Award after hitting a home run in the third inning and another home run. On the other hand, two-way star Shohei Ohtani starts with a designated hitter and throws the first perfect. An entry to receive the winner’s credit.
