Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver threw the second no-hitter of the young baseball season last night against the Minnesota Twins. It’s the first of Weaver’s career and came with his parents and wife in attendance.
After the game, the right-hander talked about how special it was to share with his family.
It's awesome, man," Weaver said of the family affair. "It's an unbelievable experience to have them come down on the field and shed some tears -- happy tears.
"My dad's been there since the beginning with my mom and brother. I know my brother was watching. My dad was my coach in Little League. To bring him out on the field, I'll never forget that."
Weaver threw 121 pitches in the masterpiece and didn’t require any spectacular plays defensively to perserve his clean slate.
