Woodman no-hits Giants
Kevin Woodman of the Embassy Suites Dodgers tossed the South Tahoe Little League season’s first no-hitter, striking out 13 in a 10-0 pummeling of the Nor-Cal Beverage Giants on May 16.
“I didn’t know I threw a no-hitter until my dad told me,” said Kevin Woodman, whose dad, Kim, coaches his team. “I was just having fun and throwing my curveball. It breaks about 1 feet or so.”
