Oddity: Rockies' Adam Ottavino first pitcher to wear No. 0
For the first time in major-league history, a pitcher is No. 0: Adam Ottavino of the Colorado Rockies.
The losing pitcher in Monday's Brewers-Rockies extra-inning game was lesser-known relief pitcher Adam Ottavino of the Rockies. But there's a distinction when it comes to Ottavino -- his jersey number.
Ottavino took the hill sporting No. 0 on his back, making him the first pitcher in Major League Baseball history to sport zero in a game.
