Ring tosses no-no
Wed June 2, 2010
The Tigers ace Matt Ring had been battling an esophagus issue, lost 13 pounds in a week, was back-and-forth from the hospital and starts the Sectional championship game?
Yes, the gamer did. But not only did he lead the Tigers to a victory against the Delaware County rival Delta, he threw a no-hitter.
The 6-foot, 178-pound (correction 165-pound) right-handed pitcher lifted the 26-6 Yorktown Tigers into Regional to face Fort Wayne Elmhurst. Ring was without his best fastball, but made up for it with his pinpoint placement, late life on his pitches and defensive help from his teammates.
