High School Softball Pitcher Tosses Improbable All-Strikeout Perfect Game

Shannon Becker of Mahopac High School in New York struck out all 21 batters she faced during a recent victory. The scariest part is she's only a sophomore.

Most pitchers dream of throwing a perfect game.

Shannon Becker not only achieved it, but she struck out all 21 batters she faced in the process. I guess you can call it a "perfect" perfect game.

Most pitchers dream of throwing a perfect game.

Shannon Becker not only achieved it, but she struck out all 21 batters she faced in the process. I guess you can call it a "perfect" perfect game.

Becker, a sophomore at Mahopac (New York) High School, accomplished the remarkable feat during an 8-0 win against Carmel High School. It's believed to be the first 21-strikeout perfect game in New York high school softball history.

This was just the most recent display of Becker's dominance, as earlier this season, she threw a no-hitter that included 19 Ks. Her fastball sits in the low-to-mid 60s. A straight-A student, Becker also plays basketball and soccer for Mahopac.

On the year, Becker, a team captain, has totaled 229 strikeouts in 99 innings on her way to a 0.28 ERA. Only a sophomore, she's already drawing interest from SEC, ACC and Pac-12 schools.
