THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 21, 2023 Page 23 SPORTS WIRE | FROM PAGE 20 career winning percentage (200-88) is the best among pitchers in the Modern Era with at least 200 career wins, just ahead of former Yankee great and Hall of Famer Whitey Ford (236-106, .690)? Wow. Like we said, we knew he was good, but not that good, with those numbers! **** SPORTS WIRE SHOUTOUTS: By the way, House of Pain’s former lead singer Everlast resurrected even more interest in the aforementioned great Yankees lefty in 1998 with the gem album: “Whitey Ford Sings the Blues,” which went triple-platinum with three million sold. The iconic and awesome top single off that record, “What It’s Like,” reached #13 on the charts of the Top 100... What we want to know is, did Everlast ever meet the real Whitey Ford, and, of course, did the big NYY lefty ever get any loot for the liberal use of his real name, no less, all over the rap world. The real Whitey Ford was only 70 when the Everlast record dropped, and he lived until 2020 (age 82), so must have got paid something, no? We’ll find out... There were two umpires working at the Malden-Revere game on Monday, but just one on the job in the Tornados’ previous game against Lynn Classical at Pine Banks Park. With a shortage of game offi cials in nearly every sport, including baseball, expect more of the same, says those in the know. JV and Freshman games already are having just one umpire due to the shortage these days... A couple of remarkable baseball nuggets: #1) Who is the only pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history to throw a no-hitter on Opening Day? Answer Below... #2) Does anyone know these two things: A) What is Ichiro Suzuki’s real, legal name...on his Japanese driver’s license, for example, and why is he not enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame right now? Answer below, as well... Malden High senior tennis captain Naveen Nevalapuri is seeking his second Most Valuable Player nod in the Greater Boston League this year and is well on his way, having not lost a set in early play. Naveen is extremely active in extracurricular activities both with his senior class and as an Ambassador with the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). ANSWERS: In all of major-league history, only one no-hitter has been pitched on Opening Day. Perhaps not surprisingly, it was thrown by the 21-year-old Cleveland Indians prodigy Bob Feller on April 16, 1940, against the Chicago White Sox on a blustery 40-degree day in Comiskey Park. The masterpiece was the fi rst of three no-hitters Hall of Fame Feller threw in his illustrious career, along with a remarkable 12 one-hitters. He had gone 24-9 on the mound the previous 1939 season for the Tribe... ANSWER #2: The name on Ichiro’s driver’s license in Japan is Suzuki Ichiro. In Japan, like in China and Korea, the fi rst name follows the family name. A person with the fi rst name “Ichiro” and the family name “Suzuki” is, therefore, called “Suzuki Ichiro” rather than “Ichiro Suzuki.” In 2001, with much fanfare, he became the fi rst player in MLB history (and only one to date) to have his fi rst name, “Ichiro,” emblazoned on his Seattle Mariners jersey. ~ Home of the Week ~ WAKEFIELD - 1st AD - Custom built, one-owner Contemporary offers 8 rooms, 3 bedrooms w/newer flooring, 3 ½ baths, updated kitchen with solar solarium, custom cabinets, granite counters, oversized island, bar area wit wine cooler, open to dining room, custom woodworking, hardwood flooring, stunning family room w/cathedral ceilings, fireplace, wet bar w/granite counters, slider to deck w/jacuzzi, den w/skylights, convenient 1st floor laundry, second floor balcony overlooking family room, primary bedroom w/private bath, walk-in closet & slider to balcony, finished lower level offers playroom w/ kitchenette, two car garage, private setting.
