This no-hitter by Sean Manaea took place April 21, 2018, the 111th day of the year.
This man is 26-years-old. If you have read Letters & Numbers, you know why that is important.
Major League Baseball = 63 (Reduction); Major League = 63 (Reverse Reduction)
4/21/2018 = 4+21+20+18 = 63
Last year the first no-hitter was on June 3, or 6/3.
Here are what readers came up with.
Don't forget the Arietta no-hitter and 46 in 2016, that was sure sign of things to come for the Cubs.
The 114 birthday for the pitchers, in light of the 114th World Series, ties to what I have been saying... the big narratives, such as no-hitters and perfect games, are always in tribute to the scripted championship games (and playoffs) to come.
And the 108 is great too.
Major League = 108 (Ordinal)
108 Double Stitches on a Baseball
The Cubs broke the 108-year drought
Geometry = 108 / 108; Mathematics = 112 (112th World Series) (1+1 = 2)
This accomplishment came 79-days after Sean Manaea's 26th birthday.
Game = 26; Ballgame = 26
Major League Baseball = 351 (26th triangular number)
Athletics = 97 (Ordinal)
Champion = 79 (79, the 22nd prime)
His initials are interesting in light of him being born on the 32nd day of the year.
SM = 19+13 = 32 (Ordinal)
America = 32 (Reduction)
7/4/1776 = 7+4+1+7+7+6 = 32
Oakland, California = 74
