Juan Nieves’s 1987 No-Hitter for the Milwaukee Brewers

Earlier this month, I made this post and then this video about the Milwaukee Brewers’ recent no-hitter, which was part of a riddle connected to the 1989 film Major League.

I was so overwhelmed with those syncs, however, that I barely mentioned how it was connected to the only other no-hitter thrown by the Brewers, which occurred back in 1987.

The pitcher who accomplished the feat was Juan Nieves, whose career was derailed early by a pitching injury after only three seasons with the team. I pointed out how Burnes’s no-hitter was thrown against starting pitcher Zach Plesac, who is the son of Dan Plesac, one of Nieves’s teammates in 1987…but of course, there’s a lot more to unravel.

Corbin Burnes threw his no-hitter a span of 34 years, 150 days after Juan Nieves threw his:

Corbin = 34, Burnes = 34, Nieves = 34, Juan Nieves = 150


Nieves’ Debut & No-Hitter

Juan Nieves & Corbin Burnes = 98, Milwaukee Brewers = 98

Corbin Burnes was born a span of 90 months, 8 days after Nieves’s no-hitter (or 190 days after its anniversary):"Juan Manuel Nieves Cruz" = 254 (English Ordinal)

190 is the Ordinal value of Milwaukee Brewers. Consider how the best player in their history is Robin Yount, whose number 19 they retired. The 290 in Reverse stands out because the 29th Prime number is 109. “No-hitter” = 109.

Milwaukee Brewers = 190 and The Milwaukee Brewers = 290

"Nieves" = 29 (Full Reduction)

Nieves was born 29 years, 290 days before Corbin Burnes:

Nieves made his Major League debut on a date with 1929, and 100 numerology, which was also the 100th day of the year:4 + 1+0 + 8+6 = 19, 4 + 1+0 + 1+9+8+6 = 29, (4) + (10) + (86) = 100

His final Major League appearance occurred on another date with Primary numerology of 100:(10) + (2) + (88) = 100

Milwaukee = 100 and 143

Juan Nieves threw his no-hitter 100 days (or a span of 14 weeks, 3 days) after his birthday:

Corbin Burnes threw Major League’s 314th no-hitter at the age of exactly 1403 weeks:


Nieves’s no-hitter also fell 370 days (or a span of exactly 53 weeks) after his debut:

Milwaukee = 37 and 53

You could also say his no-hitter fell 12 months, 5 days after his first game:

Wisconsin = 125 and 44

The date of his no-hitter had Primary numerology of 125 and 44:(4) + (15) + (19) + (87) = 125 and (4) + (15) + 1+9+8+7 = 44

Nieves turned 1162 weeks old the day before the game:

Brewers = 1162 Jewish and 90 Ordinal

Juan was born on a date with Primary numerology of 90: (1) + (5) + (19) + (65) = 90

He wound up playing his final game on the date that leaves 90 days in the year:


“911” Riddle

Milwaukee Brewers No-Hitter sums to 119 in Reduction.

"Milwaukee Brewers No-Hitter" = 119 (Full Reduction)

Juan Nieves made his debut on a date with Primary numerology of 119:(4) + (10) + (19) + (86) = 119

He played his final game on another date with Primary numerology of 119:(10) + (2) + (19) + (88) = 119

Major League was released in theaters on a date with 119 numerology:(4) + (7) + (19) + (89) = 119

Corbin Burnes was in his 1160th day in the Major Leagues when he threw his no-hitter, which was finished off by 10019-day-old Josh Hader on 11/9, or September 11th, which is the 254th day of the year:

Juan Nieves‘s full name sums to 254 in the alphabetic order.
