1996 Dodger right-hander Hideo Nomo no-hits the Rockies, 9-0, at Coors Field, becoming the only big-league hurler to accomplish the feat in the thin air of Denver. Tornado Boy's performance in Colorado is the best-attended no-no and is the only hitless game with a paid attendance of more than 50,000 fans. 1998 At the age of 107, Chet Hoff dies in Daytona Beach, Florida, giving the southpaw the longest life span of any major leaguer. Before WW I ended his playing career, 'Red' played for the New York Highlanders (1911-13) and St. Louis Browns (1915), compiling a 2-4, 2.49 record. 1998 The Braves become the first team since the 1915 Red Sox to have five pitchers win 15 or more games in the same season. Joining Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, John Smoltz, and Kevin Millwood, southpaw Denny Neagle becomes the latest Atlanta hurler to accomplish the feat when he scatters six hits over six innings in a 1-0 victory over Arizona. 2000 Due to conditions created by Hurricane Gordon, the Devil Rays postpone their scheduled game against the A's at Tropicana Field, becoming only the third contest in a domed stadium affected by a weather event. The other postponements included a 1976 game between the Astros and the Pirates when ten inches of rain fell in Houston, making the Astrodome inaccessible, and a 1983 tilt between the Twins and Angels because the Metrodome's roof collapsed under the weight of heavy snow. 2001 After a six-day hiatus, major league teams play games for the first time since the September 11th terrorist attacks. A new baseball tradition begins with the singing of God Bless America, and Cardinal announcer Jack Buck captures a nation's mood by reading his original poem, We Shall Overcome, during the seventh-inning stretch at Busch Stadium.
