One heck of a comeback story

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

From not being able to throw a baseball to being on top of the baseball world.

This is one heck of a comeback story.

Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett threw the first no-hitter of his career, and the first in the majors this season, leading L-A to a 6-0 win over the Phillies yesterday.

Beckett sent down each batter in a lineup that included 2 former National League MVPs and 4 All-Stars.

It was the 21st no no in Dodgers history, the 11th in LA Dodgers history, and the first one since Hideo Nomo in 1996.

The 34-year-old Beckett is 3-and-1 this season, and seems to have pushed his health issues to the side for the time being.

His career was almost derailed last year by a nerve condition that left him unable to feel his fingertips.

But the 2003 World Series MVP is back on top of the baseball world.

And what makes this story even better is that Beckett threw aside any superstitions and started talking about throwing a no hitter in the 4th inning.

Sounds like a Disney movie.
