Mackenzie Brown will get to throw out the first pitch at a New York Met game this weekend. From 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.
Is there another Eri Yoshida in the making but on this side of the Pacific? Tune back in about 5-10 years from now.
Could a woman play professional baseball one day? I think so. The most likely way for one to make it, would be as a Knuckleball pitch. That pitch doesn’t require much velocity to drive hitters insane. The trouble is, few coaches know how to teach throwing it and pro baseball scouts and coaches have are prejudiced towards power pitchers, with good reason. BTW, Eri Yoshida’s specialty pitch is the Knuckleball.
