Twelve year old girl throws perfect game

>> Saturday, April 25, 2009

Editor Liz sends me this terrific news item: 12-year-old Mackenzie Brown threw a perfect game last week!

BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) - Mackenzie Brown is the first girl in Bayonne Little League history to throw a perfect game. She retired all 18 boys she faced on Tuesday. There are no official records of how many perfect games are thrown per season. Little League Baseball in Williamsport, Pa., estimates only 50 to 60 occur each year. No one knows how many have been thrown by girls. Brown says she knew she had something special going in the fourth inning and just tried not to mess up. She'll get to throw out the first pitch at Citi Field on Saturday when the New York Mets host the Washington Nationals.

Mackenzie struck out twelve of the eighteen boys she faced, including the last six. Congratulations, Mackenzie!

That's awesome! Did you see the high school pitcher who was on ESPN a week or two ago... He threw 3 no-hitters in a row. Pretty wild.

WOW, I think "trying not to mess up" is the way any pitcher, young or old, must feel mid way through the game.
