Since the beginning of the 2010 season, Major League Baseball has had 17 no-hitters, including the one thrown by Homer Bailey tonight.
In this day and age, no-hitters are much more frequent. But it still is a beautiful thing to see. I enjoy it more when the celebration following is just so joyful. The hugs, the pies, the Gatorade showers. Those are the things that really make these things fun.
Despite power numbers growing and hitters getting smarter, it’s still a pitcher’s game and this is why the dominance has continued in these past few seasons. And every time I see it, it’s pretty fun and brings me back to the joys of this beautiful game.
