Mackenzie Brown’s Perfect Game – Just One of the Boys

Perfect!

Over the course of a Little League baseball season it is believed that about 50-60 perfect games are recorded each year, but how many of those games are thrown by girls playing with the boys?  No one really knows for sure, but what we do know is that one of those gems happened right here in Bayonne, New Jersey.  12-year old Mackenzie Brown – was perfect!

On April 21, 2009 Mackenzie accomplished one of the most extraordinary achievements in baseball – a perfect game.  That day she struck out 12 batters.  Mackenzie says, “In the fourth inning I kind of knew.  Then I just tried to keep doing what I was doing and not try to mess up.”

Mackenzie has been playing with the boys since she was 6 years old, but next year will make the transition to softball because it will offer more opportunities for her to compete at the collegiate level; one of her dreams.

Mackenzie has been receiving a lot of national attention since throwing that perfect game.  She has been on national TV, Sport Center’s Top 10, The Sports Bra Reports and has even thrown out the first pitch for the New York Mets at Citi Field.

Throwing the first pitch @ Citi Field, Home of the Mets.  A memory she's sure to never forget.

Mackenzie Brown is one of approximately 100,000 girls who play baseball at the Little League Level.  I believe that it’s great to see that these young female athletes are given the opportunity to compete along with the boys, showing that they too can be perfect among the boys.
