Phillies honor Ruiz for catching four no-hitters

PHILADELPHIA -- Carlos Ruiz has made his mark in Phillies history, and the Phillies honored him Sunday for one of his greatest accomplishments.

Former Phillies manager Charlie Manuel presented Ruiz a painting for tying a Major League record catching four no-hitters: Roy Halladay's perfect game in 2010, Halladay's no-hitter in Game 1 of the 2010 National League Division Series; a combined no-hitter in September 2014 and Cole Hamels' no-hitter in July.

Halladay offered a nice congratulatory message on Phanavision during the ceremony.
