On Tuesday, team Ontario's Roman Figueroa did just that. 

Pitching against the Prairies, Figueroa spun a gem, throwing the first no-hitter of his young baseball career en route to a 2-0 victory.

"It's just a rush of all feelings," said Figueroa after the game, beaming with excitement. "I pitched really well, I was just excited to pitch."
