Where was Fister?
I was disappointed when I received my Merced Sun-Star on the morning of Sept. 28 and did not see "Merced's own Doug Fister makes sports history," or something along that line as the main headline on the front page. Not even the main headline for the sports section.
I don't think people realize what a huge accomplishment nine strikeouts in a row is. He is now in a class with legendary pitchers such as Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan and Rodger Clemens. He now holds the American League record; this record, by the way, is over 100 years old.
