[iSports Times] A high-schooler named Michael Strem has thrown a 66-pitch perfect game. According to the San Jose Mercury News, Strem’s perfect game was the first in his school’s history. It came during the top-seeded St. Francis Lancers’ first-round matchup versus No. 16 seed Monta Vista in the California Interscholastic Federation Central Coast Section Division I playoffs. The St. Francis Lancers ultimately won the contest when Mark Cardinalli hit a two-run single in the sixth inning. Even more impressively, this 66-pitch perfect game included 48 strikes. Thus, Strem averaged just over three pitches per batter, finishing the contest with eight strikeouts. While this is the first 66-pitch perfect game of Strem’s career, he has been dominant at the high school level this season. Per MaxPreps.com, the pitcher is 10-1 in 13 appearances with a 1.12 ERA. He also has a .400 batting average with 40 hits and 17 runs batted in. Per NESN, he has already committed to Boston College.
Hey Michael Strem, you might be pulling in an endless amount of high school trim with your bullshit perfect game, but you’re not impressing me. 7 innings? That’s cake. Innings 8 & 9 are where you prove whether or not you got hair on your sack. Everybody knows that. Not to mention, you’re hurling against high school lineups with maybe 2-3 good bats. Give me 21 ABs against this kid and he’ll need Tommy John before he gets through 7 – and that’s if he doesn’t quit after I smoke one up the middle. Ask any arc pitcher on Long Island.
