Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Tommy Greene was signed as a 1st round pick in the 1985 amateur draft by the Atlanta Braves and scouts Bill Wight and Smoky Burgess.

Despite having only six major league victories to his name at the time, and despite his catcher Darrin Fletcher having caught only 27 games in his short career, Greene took the mound for the Philadelphia Phillies on May 23, 1991 and threw a no-hitter against the Montreal Expos. It was certainly not a thing of beauty however, as Greene gave up 7 walks in the process. His next start, on May 28th, was also against the Expos, and this time he threw a three-hit shutout while walking none. He had struck out 10 batters in the no-hit game, and added 9 K's in the follow-up. Fletcher was also the catcher for the second game.

Tommy Greene was named as the inaugural general manager of the Monroe Channelcats part of the Southern Collegiate Baseball League, a collegiate wood bat summer baseball league.

Greene was a high school teammate of future major leaguer Patrick Lennon.
