Congratulations Mackenzie Brown on a Perfect Game


How many times has a woman shaken her head in disgust when some poor schmuck of an awkward guy heard the belittling declaration: “You throw just like a girl!”?

Well guys – you can only hope.

27 batters up, 27 batters down. No hits, walks, runs. A no hitter and a shutout – a pitcher’s perfect game.

In major league history, the perfect game has been pitched only 17 times.

Little Leaguer Mackenzie Brown pitched a perfect game just the other day.

Yeah, baby!
