Hideo Nomo Trended On Twitter Thanks To Josh Beckett’s No-Hitter

Thanks to Josh Beckett the world now has reason to remember Hideo Nomo. You remember Nomo, right? The Tornado. He took the MLB by storm in 1995, winning Rookie of the Year and leading the league in strikeouts that season. He could never quite recapture the form from that breakout season, ultimately becoming a veteran journeyman – though he did win another stakeout title.

Anywho, Beckett’s no-hitter on Sunday was the first by a Los Angeles Dodgers player since Nomo in 1996. Twitter got excited to talk about Nomo and went 1990s nostalgia with the reactions. Here are some of the best hot takes from a Sunday Funday.
