Relive the Moment: Jon Lester Completes Baseball Comeback, Throws No-Hitter Against Royals at Fenway Park in 2008


August 17, 2011

Less than two years after undergoing treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, Jon Lester took the mound at Fenway Park on May 19, 2008 in a start against the Royals. Nine innings later, Lester brought Red Sox Nation to its feet by tossing a no-hitter, and was subsequently mobbed by teammates and an emotional Terry Francona, who was overcome with joy to see Lester return to baseball in grand form.

To see Lester etch his name into Red Sox history, check out the video below.
