Halladay Makes History
I feel like I’ve just written a million words, so I’m a little tapped out.
But that was awesome, wasn’t it?
I had missed Roy Halladay’s perfect game in May. I had missed Kevin Millwood‘s no-hitter in 2003. It became a running joke in the press box: whenever a pitcher had a no-hitter going reporters would joke it would not happen because I was there. But I was there tonight, and it was one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.
Like Harry Kalas liked to say, “You never know what you’ll see at the ballpark.”
Halladay got congratulatory phone calls from Vice President Joe Biden and Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter after the game.
