17 Year Old Girl Pitches Batting Practice To Major League Team

Chelsea-sAccording to –

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.

Baseball Player Handles Heckler – [video]

What Are The Odds? Kid Attends 2 Perfect Games 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.

Stan Musial’s Greatest Accomplishment Occurred Off The Field

The greatest St.Louis Cardinal, Stan Musial, turns 90 Sunday, November 21, 2010. The St.Louis Post-Dispatch printed a special section for the occasion, which reminded me of Stan’s most outstanding accomplishment. It occurred but 50 years ago, and now seems to be impossible. After a disappointing season in 1959, Stan asked for and received a 25% pay cut. Can anyone imagine any of today’s athletes doing that? Stan “The Man” truly represents baseball and America at their best.

Happy Birthday Stan!
