Katie BrownellOn May 14, 11-year-old Katie Brownell pitched a perfect game while playing Little League baseball for the Dodgers in upstate New York. Not only did she pitch a perfect game, all 18 outs in the game were strike-outs and none of the batters even reached a full count — she struck out every single batter she faced. Wow.

Yesterday, her number 3 Dodgers jersey was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown NY. "We're honored to be receiving Katie's jersey," said Jeff Idelson, vice president of communications for the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. "Katie's accomplishment helps to further illustrate that you don't have to be a male to be a team leader in baseball."

Chris Downs, media relations manager of Little League Baseball and Softball, said that girls have been playing Little League since 1974, and "As we've been able to review the records, we think she's the only girl to throw a perfect game." Congratulations Katie.
