NHL Survivor Pitches No Hitter

When we went to bed last night, we heard the news that a young Boston Red Sox pitcher had thrown a no hitter…..which was also his first complete game!  “How cool is that!?!” I said to Larry.  Larry played middle infield for Washington State and, at 46 years of age, he’s still playing ball…..so I’ve come to appreciate, over the years, how rare and special a no hitter is.

This morning, as I was drinking my funny tasting coffee and watching Good Morning America, I learned, as Paul Harvey would say……the rest of the story……

24-year-old Boston Red Sox pitcher, Jon Lester, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2006.  He sat out the 2006 season while he underwent chemotherapy……and last night he threw his first complete game and his first no-hitter…..all in the same night!  Very Cool!!!

The rest of the story…..
