13 Year Old Girl Pitches 2 No Hitters, Gets Honored by Baseball Hall of Fame

BlogHer Original Post

13 year old Chelsea Baker was honored by the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown this week for pitching two perfect games this season.

Most pitchers never pitch a perfect game in their life.

This teenaged phenom is pitching circles around the boys down in Plant City, Florida.

Chelsea learned her knuckleball from Joe Niekro. Niekro was her coach when she started pitching back when she was seven years old. Before that, Joe Niekro pitched for the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves, Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers and San Diego Padres.

Chelsea is an outstanding pitcher. Her team didn't make it to the Little League World Series, but I'm guessing this isn't the last time you will see this young lady on television.

 

I'll be rooting for her.
