Metro Detroit: Newsmakers June 13, 2007




FSN to replay last night's Tigers-Brewers game at noon June 13

Fox Sports Net Detroit will replay the June 12th Detroit Tigers - Milwaukee Brewers game, featuring pitcher Justin Verlander's first no hit game, today at noon. The performance by Verlander was the first by a Tigers pitcher at home since 1952.

Detroit Free Press:

Tigers play-by-play broadcaster Mario Impemba called the first Tigers no-hitter in a generation and not once did he actually mention it -- at least until after the final out. Neither he nor his broadcasting partner, Rod Allen, used the phrase "no-hitter" during Justin Verlander's dominant, 4-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night. The announcing team's superstitious decision was part of an unwritten baseball rule: Don't jinx a pitcher flirting with the rare feat... How radio and TV called Verlander's no-hitter (Wed, 6/13)

Mourned: Longtime Detroit radio voice (WCHB-AM and WGPR-FM) Larry Dixon. He died last week after a fight with throat cancer... Names and Faces (Wed, 6/13)
