Mackenzie Brown will save the Mets

Pax Arcana

mackenzie_brownThe sports blogs are all aflutter today with the story of Mackenzie Brown, a 12-year-old girl who pitched a perfect game in a Bayonne, New Jersey Little League game. Brown struck out 12 hitters in her 6 innings of work, including the last 6 batters she faced:

Mackenzie, who says she plays baseball because she always has been successful against the boys and just wanted to continue with it, knew she had something special going midway through the game.

“In like the fourth inning I kind of knew,” she said. “Then I just tried to keep doing what I was doing and not try to mess it up.”

And because she’s 10 gallons of awesome in a pint glass, Mackenzie Brown will be throwing out the first pitch at the Mets game tomorrow. Here’s hoping she can show the 6-9 Mets how to play with some balls.
