No-No!

Remember this date--Friday, March 10, 2006. On this day Giants prospect Shairon Martis threw the first ever no-hitter in World Baseball Classic history. Yeah, that is a short history, but it speaks volumes about Martis' advanced stuff and make-up at the age of 18. He didn't even need a single strikeout while leading Netherlands over Panama 10-0. Martis showed he can keep the ball on the ground with fastball location accompanied by a good sinker/slider combo.


Dr. B had this to say about his #8 prospect:
8. Shairon Martis (RHP). DOB 03-30-1987 6'1", 175 lbs.
2-1, 1.85, 34 IP, 50 K, 9 BB!! for AZL Giants. Mid 90's fastball with advanced secondary stuff and command. Barring injury, this kid is going to move up fast. Since we have a paucity of "sure thing" prospects, I see no reason not to get out in front of a kid with this upside.
Martis had this to say about his accomplishment:
"I feel very proud," Martis said. "Words cannot express what I feel."
