Last night, Chris Martin ensured that he will be remembered in baseball history for years and years to come. He’s likely not on Hall-of-Fame track — shoot, he’s probably not even on “Hall-of-Very, Very Good” track at that. He will be remembered for doing something that’s only happened 99 times in recorded baseball history. Chris Martin wrote his name into the history books of Major League Baseball by tossing an immaculate inning for the Atlanta Braves.
To give you an idea of how rare this type of thing is, it’s the first time that this has happened for a Braves pitcher since 2007.
