Jeff Hobbs - After finishing a league-worst 53-108 in my rookie season in the TCBA, I found myself with the #1 pick for the second straight year (the Rhode Island Hawks had gone something like 40-122 the year before I took them over).  I used that pick to draft 3B Edwin Encarnacion, and nabbed both C Ryan Doumit ($62K) and 3B Mark Teahen ($32K) in the auction.

Although Chase Utley had developed into a superstar since I'd inherited him and I also had Justin Morneau and Ben Sheets on the roster, I was still far from being able to compete.  I continued to focus my efforts on rebuilding instead, and the result was a 54-108 season and a THIRD straight #1 pick the following year.  Still, the Fungoes were slowly beginning to build something in the hope of one day challenging for the title.

 

Eric LundeenFreddy Garcia's perfect game against the Triplets was the 2nd time I have been no-hit this year!! I hope I am not the first to fall victim to that.

 

Bob Braun - Actually the event is quite common - twenty times in fact! Two teams have been no-hit three times in a season: Mexicali 3 times in 1968 and Rockford 3 times in 1982.

 

Seven teams have experienced being no-hit twice in a season twice!

 

Newmarket 1922 & 1966

Cleveland 1967 & 1968

Gettysburgh 1970 & 1973

Bradenton 1973 & 1980

Northeast 1979 & 1986

Bethesda 1991 & 1997

Kennett 1993 & 1995

 

Twelve other teams have been no-hit twice in one season once in their history:

Hyde Park 1965

South Starrucca 1965

Boston 1976

Norfolk 1976

Meadowlands 1978

Horseshoe Bay 1982

Newark 1988

Horseshoe Bay 1995

Long Island 1996

Beacon 2002

Fargo 2010

Hereford 2013

 

But only one team has been double-no-hit FOUR times in their history. The Binghamton franchise: 1987, 1992, 2004, 2006.

 

Congratulations on continuing the lineage, Eric!

 

Marty Fiehl - Hey, here's something unique............if anyone took a look at the standings in Gold, Yesterday, and Today at the moment, they would see a Braun-led team at the top of their division in all three leagues!

 

Yep, Hyde Park is currently atop the Hackbart in both Gold and Yesterday, while his Beacon Braves are frontrunners in the Metro of our Today league!  I don't know of anyone who may have kept the records, but at this point, I can only imagine this is the first that it has ever happened.

 

Let’s hope the prosperity doesn't overwhelm the Vities/Braves as they divide their attention trying to bring home division flags in a TCBA Trifecta! Congrats!
