Grandpa Roy Column!! The Return!
Hey guys, Drew back here. It sure has been a while, but it is finally time for some more Grandpa Roy Trivia! So without any further motion, here is your question of the day...
Two weeks ago today, Justin Verlander threw his 2nd no hitter of his career, becoming the 228th pitcher in the modern era to do so. However, while over 40 players have thrown multiple no hitters, only 4 have thrown 2 in the same regular season. Who were these 4 players, and what teams did they throw their no hitters for?
1: Johnny Vander Meer, Cincinatti Reds (guessed by Joe)
2: Virgil Trucks, Detroit Tigers (guessed by Baseball Nut)
3: Nolan Ryan, California Angels (guessed by Ryan G.)
4: Allie Reynolds, New York Yankees (guessed by Baseball Nut)
Remember the rules, please guess only one person for every 24 hours, and have fun!
