    It's a shame you feel this way... The very few who achieve it will never forget. Like the softball pitcher I say good for the little guy! He's a kid who achieved what few in the game do.... I agree with you however, perspective.

    OK, at least here's one that's baseball related........ "West Seattle Little League: Jacob Terao’s 18-strikeout perfect game"......

    Same as my impression of the girls' softball thing......"Eh, it's girls' softball".

    Perspective Jake, simply perspective.
    A kid from San Diego pitched an 18K perfect game at the LLWS a few years ago.

    It may be there was a better pitcher in front of her the previous year. A very good softball pitcher sat behind the pitcher I referenced until her senior year. She didn't worry about it. She knew she couldn't hit. She was already recruited for college softball from travel before she got in the varsity circle senior year.

    I shut the thread down... too bad it turned into what it did... I really did not see that coming.
