McWeeney No-Hits Seattle

RHP Robby McWeeney pitched the first no-hitter in Arizona Cowboys history, and the first since June, 2017.

(Game date: 15 Apr. 2019) — Robby McWeeney was feeling calm about his no-hitter — until the last three outs.

“You really become conscious of every pitch at that point,” the Arizona pitcher said. “The adrenaline level kicks up even higher. Everybody in the ballpark knows a no-hitter is on the line. The crowd is on its feet. One mistake and it’s all over.”

CAN-AM Week #1 – Everglades, Richelieu Split the Lead

The first week’s power rankings are out for the Can-Am College League, and the top teams splitting the lead, both with 148.0 points, are Collège Cardinal Richelieu Monarchistes (DIV A, Canada Conference) and the Everglades U Swampmen (DIV B, Southern Conference), with both teams 4-1 after five games.

Just how long these teams will retain their positions is up for debate, however. There is a large field of strong teams in all divisions, notably Essex Tech Bullfrogs, with 8 homers (twice that of Richelieu, and leading the Can-Am league), and Danbury Central College Bobcats, with a Can-Am League-leading 37 runs (tied with RMA Sandhurst Blues and Reds and Army Black Knights).

Vazquez No-Hits Kingston Cannons B

Rookie league pitcher Edgar Vazquez (OHI B) fired a no-hitter Saturday

It was a terrific day for Edgar Vazquez of the Key Largo Ohio Oxen B at Tallahasee Field today. The right-hander stood out with a fantastic 2-0 no-hitter against the Tallahassee Kingston Cannons B.

“I knew I had a no-no going in about the sixth inning, when I noticed no one was talking to me anymore,” he said, referring to the time-honored superstition of avoiding the pitcher so as not to jinx the no-hitter. “Don’t let people fool you. Everybody on the field and in the ballpark knows what’s happening. They just pretend they don’t.” Continue reading “Vazquez No-Hits Kingston Cannons B”
