17 Year Old Girl Pitches Batting Practice To Major League Team

Chelsea-sAccording to MLB.com –

A 17-year-old girl from Plant City, Florida is making sure that baseball fans around the world remember Joe Niekro for more than just the emery board incident. See, Chelsea Baker is a high school pitcher for the Durant High School baseball team. Under Niekro’s tutelage, Baker began to master the art of the knuckleball when she was just 10 years old and has been torturing male hitters with it for a majority of her life, now. On Monday, Baker and her knuckleball took on their biggest challenge yet … the Tampa Bay Rays.

What Are The Odds? Kid Attends 2 Perfect Games

MLB.com reports that Paul Dockal has taken his one-year-old son, Bode, to two baseball games this season at Seattle’s Safeco Field and both of those games were perfect games. In April, the White Sox’s, Philip Humber was perfect and in August, Seattle’s, Felix Hernandez threw another perfect game. Most fans never see a no-hitter; so, imagine this kid’s luck.

There have been only 23 perfect games thrown in nearly a century and a half of Major League history. Two of them were the first two games Bode Dockal ever attended in person. Paul said that, in a way, he wishes his son would never attend another game – nothing could top what he’s already seen. But he knows Bode will have to relive the magic of Humber and Felix through photos and stories rather than actual recollections. Plus, someday decades from now, Bode might walk through the gates of a stadium with a son of his own.

Some People Should Stay Away From Baseball Games

According to 1957 Time Capsule –

On August 17, 1957, one of Philadelphia’s most loved baseball heroes fouled twice, striking the same spectator, in one at-bat. Center-fielder Richie Ashburn, one of the 1950 National League Champion “Whiz Kids”, played outstanding ball for the Phillies from 1948 until 1959.

In the second game of a four-game series against the New York Giants, (which the Phillies won, 3-1), Richie fouled twice into the stands, striking spectator Alice Roth.  Alice was married to Philadelphia Bulletin Sports Editor Earl Roth.  The first errant ball broke her nose; the second struck her as she was being carried out of the stands on a stretcher.  Alice was a good sport and she and Richie remained friends for many years.
