No-hitter dates[edit]

Does anybody have dates for the no-hitters? Seems like these are important events.... Stan Musial's dead 16:21, 9 December 2006 (UTC) September 17, 1996 against the Colorado Rockies and in 2001 while a member of the Boston RedSox.

His true legacy[edit]

I was pretty shocked to see that nowhere was it mentioned what is probably his true legacy to baseball history. Nomo inspired other Japanese baseball stars to seek their way in the MLB. Several of them have publicly even stated so, and sports articles often say something to that effect. So there should be a section on this legacy. In any case, I put a sentence in the lede section for now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 128.120.178.36 (talk) 06:22, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Devastating Loss?[edit]

Can someone post a citation or clarify that Japanese game mentioned in Accomplishments? It calls the game Nomo's most devastating loss, but according to the description given Nomo would have had a no-decision. Please clarify. Vader47000 (talk) 21:23, 14 September 2008 (UTC)

I removed a section that I personally feel doesn't fit into the section "Accomplishments".[edit]

This was the part that I removed, "During his last year in Japan with the Kintetsu Buffaloes in 1994, Nomo was involved in an interesting season opener against the Seibu Lions. After four innings, Nomo had a stunning 11 strikeouts and had allowed no hits. The game remained scoreless after eight innings, but the Buffaloes finally gave Nomo a lead in the top of the ninth. With one out and a man on second, the Lions decided to intentionally walk Ralph Bryant and the next batter, Hiroo Ishii, connected for a three-run homer off starter Kuo Tai-yuan, putting Nomo within three outs of a no hitter. However, the Lions quickly responded in the bottom of the ninth with a leadoff double and Nomo proceeded to walk the next batter. Things only became worse when the second baseman committed an error on a potential double play ball. With the bases loaded and no outs, Ito Tsutomu, the only Lions player whom Nomo had not struck out in the game, came to the plate. Nomo was pulled from the game and Akahori Motoyuki was brought in to close out the game. Ito drilled the ball to the left for a walk-off grand slam. The game is considered by some to be the most devastating loss of Nomo's career.[citation needed]".


First of all, it has no citation provided along with it, but the main reason I took it out was because I don't think it's really one of his accomplishments. It seems to be more just an interesting loss that he had, maybe it can be added to his Japanese career section or even into new section about all the memorable games he had (although I feel that's excessive information unless these games had some sort of impact on the Japanese pop culture).

If someone really feels it's important, feel more than welcome to add it back in. I'm just taking it out for now.MonkeysOnThePatio (talk) 16:23, 19 March 2011 (UTC)
