Happy birthday, America. There is nothing more American than throwing a no-hitter on Independence Day, which is what Dave Righetti did on this date 30 years ago. Thirty years since Rags no-hit the Red Sox on George Steinbrenner’s birthday. Time flies, man.
Here is your freedom-lovin’ open thread for this wonderful night. MLB Network will air a game tonight (who you see depends on where you live), and that’s pretty much it for sports at this time of the year. Enjoy the holiday, everyone.
