Default Happy Anniversary, Kerry Wood!

It was 16 years ago today that a rookie pitcher for the Cubs named Kerry Wood struck out 20 Houston Astros hitters.

What flies relatively under the radar was that he was also a single away from a perfect game!

Happy Anniversary Kerry!

holy cow it's been that long? I listened to it on the radio on the way home from church with my dad and remember it like it was yesterday. Our local weatherman on tv was named TERRY wood so everytime they would say Kerry's name I would giggle trying to imagine Terry Wood pitching in the major leagues

A friend of mine has an auto'd ROMB that's inscribed 33k's, still trying to get it from him. I'm pretty sure that's the record for strikeouts in consecutive games.
