“Jaret Edwards’ perfect game in which he struck out every batter he faced Thursday in St. Edward’s 10-0 varsity baseball victory over John Marshall in League Park is starting to gain national attention.
John Marshall has a lot of young players on its team, but regardless of the level of competition, striking out every batter is an accomplishment that not even a tiny fraction of pitchers at any level ever attain.
“It is incredibly hard to be perfect, which is why they call it a perfect game,” Coach Rosinski said. “There have only been 23 in the Major Leagues. For him to throw nothing but strikes and not walk a guy and then punch them out is not the easiest thing. He was even behind the count a couple balls on some batters. He found a way to still make quality pitches.”
This season the George Washington University-bound Edwards is 4-1 with an 0.96 ERA and 57 strikeouts in 45 innings. He’s walked 14 and allowed 26 hits.”
Not bad, not bad.
I know the Senate league isn’t exactly a perennial power house or anything but hey, you pitch against who steps into that box. A high school pitcher throwing enough strikes to not only not walk a batter, but strike every batter he faced out is pretty damn impressive. Hat tip, definite hat tip.
His classes today were probably pretty cool too.
“Hey Jaret, how’d the game go?”
“Not bad. We won. I struck out everybody.”
Kinda feel bad that he’s going to GW though. Go Bonnies.
