He was originally a California Angel, but pitched his no hitter as a New York Yankee in 1993. A couple personal thoughts from me. I remember the day he pitched the gem. My dad, brother and I were out golfing for the day. As we made it the clubhouse before making the turn to the back nine for a beverage, we saw the tail end of the game.
Also, to this day, Abbott is still the only player out of University Michigan I actually rooted for in professional sports. Hard not to cheer for this guy. And yes, I am a Spartan, through and through.
