Andrea Chiaradio, a Connecticut high school softball player, struckout every single batter that came to the plate in her team’s 3-0 win.
“I had a few 3-2 counts so that was close. And they tried bunting a few times, but they either fouled it off or just couldn’t get it down. The last batter was left-handed and fouled a few pitches off. I got kind of nervous. Then I threw a fastball on the outside corner for the last strike and it was all over.”
She pitched her perfect game hours before Phil Humber of the White Sox threw his. Clearly, something was in the air that day.
