Nick Tropeano's One-Pitch Strikeout

Corpus Christi Hooks pitcher Nick Tropeano struck out a batter in just ONE pitch last night!

I know what you’re thinking, “April, that’s not possible.”

But it is.

Midland Rockhoundes infielder Vinnie Catricala argued a strike call after the first pitch. He then refused to step back in the box, and the ump called two strikes. Just like that, Catricala was out.

I was impressed with Steve Delabar’s recent immaculate inning, in which he struck out three batters in nine pitches, but this goes from immaculate to unbelievable.
