Roy Halladay Pitches First Post-Season No-Hitter in Over A Half Century

Posted by

In Baseball, nothing can match the satisfaction of pitching a no-hitter. Home runs are highly desired and sought after in every game, but it’s very rare to get a game pitching a no-hitter. Most especially, a no-hitter game in the post season.

1956 was the last time this happened when New York Yankees Don Larsen pitched perfectly versus the Brooklyn team. This great achievement was repeated recently by Roy Halladay, the 12 year veteran of the Philadelphia Phillies when he pitched against the Cincinnati Reds during the playoffs first game. He is just in his first season playing for Philadelphia after he was traded from Toronto where he spent most of his entire career.

Halladay is a breath of fresh air and is enjoying the total experience. In the meantime, Cincinnati team doesn’t know what hit them. Joey Vetto their slugger called Halladay, “an ace among aces”. He said it wasn’t fun being in the receiving end of his pitches. Roy Halladay is called “Doc” by his fellow players and fans. On this day the doctor surely had the cure.
