This last week Jake Arrieta pitched his second no hitter in only a year and, as it would turn out, it came just after he signed a new endorsement with Mizzen+Main. Mizzen+Main wasted no time on capitalizing on the historic feat and their recent popularity has never been higher.
The Farmington, Missouri native, Jake Arrieta, was originally chosen in the 31st round of the 2004 MLB Amateur Draft but instead chose to attend college at Weatherford Junior College and the next year transferred to Texas Christian University. Arrieta was then selected in the fifth round of the 2007 MLB Draft by the Baltimore Orioles and finished his first season in the minors with a 2.87 ERA and 120 strikeouts. After a few more seasons in the minors, Arrieta went on to play for the Orioles and played with them for four seasons posting a 20-25 record and an ERA of 5.46. In 2013 the Orioles traded Arrieta to the Chicago Cubs and, after one season of shuttling between triple A and the majors, Arrieta began the 2014 season with the MLB club. Arrieta had multiple games in 2013 and 2014 in which he took no hitters deep into the game and continued to post low ERA numbers while striking out a number of hitters. In 2015, Arrieta won 22 games and also threw his first no hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The season turned out to be his breakout campaign that saw an amazingly low ERA of 1.77 and with his amazing season Arrieta saw it rewarded with a NL Cy Young Award. This last week Arrieta threw another no hitter and became only the second pitcher ever to go undefeated in between no hitters. Arrieta, the proclaimed workout freak, currently lives in Austin, Texas with his wife and two children.
This last week, Jake Arrieta pitched another no hitter and helped his most recent endorser Mizzen+Main. The company incorporated the historic pitching performance in a recent ad and it quickly became the most popular ad the company has ever put out. With Arrieta on their side, Mizzen+Main should see an uptick in business while getting more amazing pitching performances from their Chicago Cub Ace.
