Langston-Witt no-no, 24 years ago today

Mark Langston, a San Diego native who moved to Santa Clara at age 4, spent the 1998 season with the Padres with a 4-6 record and a 5.86 ERA.

He was a California Angel on April 11, 1990, when he got the start for the Halos at home in Anaheim against the Seattle Mariners.

Langston threw seven innings of no-hit ball, but he told The AP that night that he took himself out of the game as his arm speed just wasn’t there.

Manager Doug Rader brought in Mike Witt, who retired the final six batters to close out the combined no-hitter and secure a 1-0 victory for the Angels.

Langston is currently a broadcaster for the Angels.
