Hideo Nomo was the fifth player from Japan to play Major League Baseball, joining, Masanori Murakami (1964), Bobby Fenwick (1972), Steve Chitren (1990) and Jim Bowie (1994); however, when The Tornado was sent to the 1995 All-Star Game , he became the first Japanese -born player to appear in a Midsummer Classic .

On September 17, 1996 , Hideo Nomo threw his first of two career no-hitter, the first in Major League history by a twirler from Japan, and arguably more incredibly, the first in Coors Field (and through today the only no-no in Denver) - the most hitter-friendly park in Major League Baseball!

On April 4, 2001 , Hideo Nomo threw his second no-hitter, this time in a Boston Red Sox uniform (his first was with the Los Angeles Dodgers ), making The Tornado the fourth pitcher to throw a no-hitter in both leagues, joining Ed McFarland , Jim Bunning , and Nolan Ryan .
