Second No Hitter in Little League World Series History

Second No Hitter in Little League World Series History

I had the pleasure of watching a pitching duel between West (East Lake – Chula Vista, CA) play Great Lakes (Gross Pointe, MI).  Both pitchers were tough.  It was a pitching duel right from the start.  The game wasn’t decided until the Great Lakes pitcher reached the pitching limit and a reliever was brought in. The pitcher from Chula Vista, Grant Holman, had a no hitter going into the bottom of the 6th.  He was up against the pitch limit…

So, Zeigler is as surprised as anyone else that he broke a record that has survived 101 years. On Sunday, Zeigler came in relief of Jeremy Blevins.  Zeigler has been solid all season.  He pitched two innings,…
