The first pitch was followed by Major League Baseball’s 18th perfect game, tossed by the White Sox’ Mark Buehrle.
Torres (37-1), regarded as one of the world’s top pound-for-pound fighters and a winner of 17-straight bouts, returns to action next month at WEC 42, defending his title against Brian Bowles on August 9 in Las Vegas.
“I left a cup of lion’s blood and some cobra venom for him (Buehrle) at the mound to throw a no-hitter,” said Torres in a press release. “That’s how I roll. It was an awesome experience.”
