All no-hitters deserve recognition because they are one of the hallowed accomplishments in baseball.
There are some that stand out over others, though, and Schuyler Bates
of Kennedy Catholic (Somers, N.Y.)
had one of those efforts Thursday. In tossing a no-hitter in a 5-0 win against Panas (Cortlandt Manor, N.Y.), Bates needed only 62 pitches to get the job done.
As reported by LoHud.com, Bates nearly had a perfect game. The only blemish on the second no-hitter in Gaels program history was a fifth-inning infield error. An ensuing double play took care of that.
