H1N1 Victim's Son Pitches No-Hitter In NYC

The son of a New York City assistant principal who died of H1N1 (swine) flu has pitched a no-hitter while wearing a cap bearing his father's initials.

Jordan Wiener is the son of Mitchell Wiener, an assistant principal at an intermediate school in Queens. Jordan attends Robert F. Kennedy High School in Queens and struck out 14 batters on Thursday.

His father was buried Wednesday after dying of the virus on Sunday.

The senior says he felt his father giving him the power to win. He says his dad "would want me to do what I do best, and that's pitching."

The 6-foot-6 senior left-hander would have thrown a perfect game except for a passed ball on one of those strikeouts allowed a runner to reach base, the New York Post reported.

The 10-0 victory was over Brooklyn's Prospect Heights School.
