Trivia
Great American Ballpark is one of four parks to open in March. One of three parks where the first grand slam came in an interleague game (Chase Field: 1998 and Safeco Field:1999). Homer Bailey's no-hitter was his second in 19 starts. His first also had the distinction of being the first no-hitter thrown at Pittsburgh's PNC Park and he became the second pitcher to throw the first no-hitter at multiple parks (Hideo Nomo: 1996, 2001).
