@SullyBaseball Steps Up Again With An Incredible Tribute Video To People From Baseball’s Family Who Passed In The Recent Year

By Chuck Booth (MLB Reports Majority Owner)

For anyone that reads this article.  Paul Francis Sullivan (Sully, who does a daily podcast, and hasn’t missed one day since 10/24/12) has outdone his prior efforts to bring one of the best tribute videos (not just sports) to all of the people in baseball who we lost in the last year.  Sully has now done this 3 years running during ALL – Star Week.

No doubt there is countless hours and financial cost to produce one of these masterpieces.  This video is a must watch for anybody who is a fan of the game.  Please share this video as much as humanly possible to your networks, and take a second to remember those who are no longer with us anymore.

We will have this video on our homepage at mlbreports.com all year round until the next one comes out.

All we can say is thank you Mr. Sullivan for your fandom of the game.  This is the right thing to do, and should be seen by millions of people.

Saturday July 13th, 2013

Homer Bailey took a long time to fulfill expectations in the Reds Starting Lineup.  At age 27, he has now thrown 2 No hitters in under a calendar year.  Bailey has a Career Record of 43 - 40, with a 4.38, but has hovered around a 3.70 ERA over the last 2 years.  In a team filled with history - including the only man ever to throw back to back no hitters (Johnny Vandermeer) - he has put his name up on that mantle.

The No-Hitter is a very special moment for any pitcher, any fanbase, and of course any franchise in baseball. It’s a rare feat; only 280 of them have been pitched since 1875, with 23 of them being Perfect Games.

Nolan Ryan’s 7 career No-Hitters is the Major League record, and he is one of 31 players in Major League history to throw more than one.

In 1991, the No-Hitter was officially defined by MLB’s Committee For Statistical Accuracy as follows: “An official no-hit game occurs when a pitcher (or pitchers) allows no hits during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings.”

This definition took off the books many previously recognized No-Hitters that failed to meet the definition.
