Tim Welch came down to Sag Harbor for the week and made himself quite comfortable on the mound at Mashashimuet Park, so comfortable that he ended up making history.
The sophomore-to-be at Bowdoin College in Maine tossed a seven-inning no-hitter in the Whalers' 8-0 victory over the North Fork Ospreys on Sunday. The win kicked off a spectacular pitching day for Sag Harbor, which limited North Fork to one run and just a handful of hits in the nightcap, a 4-1 Whaler triumph. Welch's no-hitter was the first in Hamptons Collegiate Baseball history. Last year, Youngstown State's Phil Klein threw a perfect game for the Whalers on July 13 on the very same mound.
