42Story -- Perfect Game

Discussion created by steve987 on Apr 10, 2013

I'd only arrived in the US three months earlier from the UK and my son decided he wanted to play baseball, so we signed up for Rookie Ball. Rookie Ball is for 7-8 year olds and has a machine to throw the balls to the batters given 7 year olds are not terribly strong at pitching. Anyhow, after 90 minutes and 8 scoreless innings the machine ended with a perfect game; it walked no one, struck out the vast majority of kids (on both sides) and we ended in a 0-0 tie... The first time one pitcher, the machine, had thrown two perfect games in the same game.
