Nancy Ann Buchholtz, 60, of Houston, formerly of Cumberland, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, Nov. She cherished her family and friends and always held them close to her heart.
Nancy was a loving daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.
After the game, however, Buchholz was optioned to the Sox' Triple-A team in Pawtucket. "I hope I can come back in September and help out." Before Buchholz' first major league start, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said: "This kid can come up and pitch a no-hitter, and he's going to go back down...
But he's going back." In only his second career major league start on September 1, 2007, he became the first Boston Red Sox rookie to throw a no-hitter when he blanked the Baltimore Orioles 10–0.
He threw 115 pitches, struck out nine, walked three, and hit Nick Markakis.
In his second major league start, he pitched a no-hitter, becoming the third MLB pitcher since 1900 to throw a no-hitter in his first or second start and the first Red Sox rookie to throw one.
Buchholz was drafted by the Red Sox in the supplemental first round of the 2005 draft.
Nancy graduated from Allegany High School, Class of 1974, and attended Allegany Community College in Cumberland.
Buchholtz; two nieces, Kimberly Ann Miller and Susan Leigh Harmer; a great-niece, Regina Ann Barnes; a great-nephew, Austin William Harmer; a great-great-nephew, Derek Harrison Barnes; and a great-great-niece, Kyleigh Catherine Barnes.
Nancy loved reading especially Stephen King thrillers, and she treasured her Precious Moments figurines.
At the time of her passing, Nancy was living in Houston, where memorial services were held to remember the person Nancy was and to celebrate her life with her family and friends.
