About Dirk Lammers

Dirk Lammers is an award-winning Associated Press journalist who for years chronicled the New York Mets 50-year quest for the team s first no-hitter. He has spent more than two decades writing thousands of news stories and features for the AP and "Tampa Tribune" on a variety of topics including business, politics, technology, sports and entertainment. In 2008, Lammers tapped into his love of baseball to create NoNoHitters.com, a website dedicated to the Mets seemingly futile quest for its first no-hitter. For the 41/2 years between the site s creation and Johan Santana s first Mets no-no in 2012, NoNoHitters.com blossomed into the Internet s online gathering point for all things related to no-hitters, garnering press coverage in the "New York Times," the "Wall Street Journal," the "New York Post" and more. He lives in Sioux Falls, SD. Fay Vincent served as the eighth Commissioner of Major League Baseball from 1989 through 1992."
