New York high school pitcher strikes out 21 batters for the "most perfect game" possible
Mahopac, NY (WCBS) -- There's a perfect game, and then there's what high school softball pitcher Shannon Becker did. She pitched a more than perfect game by striking out every single batter she faced.
"A perfect game just means that nobody got on base," her dad Bob Becker told CBS station WCBS-TV. "A perfect perfect game is you struck out everybody. Nobody successfully put the ball into play."
His daughter, a sophomore at Mahopac High School in New York, shocked her team and their fans during a game against their rivals. Shannon struck out all 21 batters on Carmel's team – resulting in an 8-0 win.
"She's just overall such a happy person," teammate Alexis MacIndoe said. "She's always singing or dancing, always keeping us entertained."
