CINCINNATI -- Before Homer Bailey was showered with a red sports drink after being mobbed by all of his teammates following the last out of his no-hitter Tuesday, he was greeted by Shin-Soo Choo's 8-year-old son, Alan. Bailey gave him a double low-five, and the celebration continued.
"He doesn't really know no-hitter games," Choo said of his son. "But everyone was excited, jumping and running."
Choo said it was special to be able to have his son at Great American Ball Park to witness such an accomplishment, even if it will take time for him to understand its significance.
"He's never going to forget about that in his life," Choo said. "For me, 23 years I've been in baseball, that's the first time I've been playing on a team with a no-hitter."
