Watch a 21-year-old Roy Halladay come one out from a no-no in his second career start

With the right-hander's stellar career coming to an end, it's a good time to look all the way back to the beginning of it. As a Blue Jays rookie, Halladay provided a tantalizing of his dominant stuff on September 27, 1998, when he tossed 8 2/3 no-hit innings against the Tigers.

His path to greatness was a winding one -- by 2001, he had been demoted all the way down to Class-A -- but by '02, he was in the Majors to stay with his potential fully realized. And while it took 12 years, he of course ended up getting that no-hitter and then some, throwing both a regular season perfect game and a postseason no-no in 2010. Congratulations on a fantastic career, Doc.
