Cardinals fans remember Daniel Poncedeleon for a few reasons.
One: because of his FANTASTIC name.
Two: a little over a year ago while pitching he was hit in the head with a line-drive causing trauma to his skull and brain that necessitated emergency brain surgery. It was unclear at that time whether he would be able to pitch again.
Three: he was able to pitch again and in his debut pitched seven innings of no-hit ball.
On Monday, July 23 Daniel Poncedeleon made his MLB debut against the Cincinnati Reds, just fifteen months after being hit in the head by a almost lethal line-drive. On July 23, he took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. It was fantastic.
