Baseball Player
    (May 3, 1986- )
    Born in La Grange, Texas
    Birth name was David DeWitt Bailey, Jr.
    Right handed pitcher
    Chosen by the Cincinnati Reds in the first round of the MLB amateur draft (2004)
    Made his Major League debut for the Reds (June 8, 2007)
    Pitched the last no-hitter of the 2012 season (September 28, 2012)
    Pitched the first no-hitter of the 2013 season (July 2, 2013)
    Normally, 'Homer' would be a great nickname for a baseball player, but it seems inappropriate for a pitcher.
    His first two seasons with the Reds were considered a disappointment, with repeated trips down to the minors.
    He got a reputation for being difficult to coach.
    He has a tattoo on his back of a hunter aiming a shotgun.
    After a reporter wrote a story about the tattoo, he said 'Thanks a lot. I haven't even told my parents about it yet and they're going to be mad at me.'
    He dropped the f-bomb in a live TV interview after his second no-hitter.
    He was USA Today's High School Player of the Year after going 15-0 with a 0.68 ERA and 201 strikeouts (2004).
    During a safari, he bagged a lion with a bow and arrow (2012).
    He has a charity wine, Homer Bailey's Chardonnay, with the proceeds supporting Outdoors Without Limits, a charity committed to reducing the barriers that prevent disabled people from enjoying the outdoors.
    He wears #34 in honor of childhood hero Nolan Ryan.
    Appropriately, Ryan was the last player to have the last no-hitter of one season and first of the next (1974-75).
