Tadano’s One-Hitter

» 20 July 2009 » In npb »

You might remember Kazuhito Tadano from his time in the Cleveland and Oakland organizations, including a season at the MLB level with the Indians in 2004.

Well, Tadano is in his second season back in Japan, and while he’s been inconsistent, he did come within one out of a no-hitter on July 10. Read on…

Unfortunately, I don’t have the velocity for the pitch he gave up his only hit on, so it doesn’t appear in this chart. But I can tell you it was pitch number 118 in the game, and it was a forkball thrown in an 0-1 count.
