CHAN HO PARK – THROWS NO-HITTER

For Immediate Release
May 20, 2004

FORT LAUDERDALE — GM E-Mack is calling it the greatest day in Fort Brags history.

After what transpired Friday, no one will deny him that.

Chan Ho Park punctuates an impressive start to a 12-game home stand with an incredible no-hit performance vs. the stunned Clovis Wheat Kings. Park’s no-hitter is the first in Brags history and the amazingly the first in E-Mack’s APBA career.

“A no-hitter is something I have never even considered doing, it’s so rare enough, but to see a pitcher like Park do it is absolutely amazing to me,” E-Mack said after his Brags finished the eight set vs. Clovis with a 5-1 mark, losing on a blown save in Game 6.

“Park was itchy and we decided to give him a spot start. Wow, he sure was itchy. He had advanced and mowed through hitters like he was Jason Schmidt. After the 7th, we knew it was going to be a distinct possibility.”

Park, a base grade 3 W L, struck out 11 and walked three, facing 30 batters. It was Park’s first victory as a Brag in three starts and four appearances. His ERA “shrunk” to 8.77 with the shutout.

Only a blown save by Derrick Turnbow in Game 6 cost them their first sweep in MWBL history. It was the second blown save of the season for the Brags’ closer, who will likely head to the DL after leaving with an injury.

The Brags team ERA is now under 4 at 3.99 as pitching and defense is proving to be a winning formula in their pitcher’s park at Shea Stadium.

The no-hitter brought the Brags to their high-water mark in franchise history at three games over .500. The Brags remain in last place in the NL Central at 24-22.

“Wow, what a performance. What a game. What a series,” E-Mack said. “Hopefully this is a turning point for our young franchise.”
