(AP) - Belfast Bombers
young hurler Mike Castro tossed a perfect game June 3 versus
the Atlanta Rebels! Castro
(14-4, 3.21 ERA, 131 strikeouts) struck out 11 Rebels while
facing the minimum 27 Atlanta batters in the Bombers 4-0 victory.
It was the first recorded perfect game in the modern history
of the Weaver League. Pat Hentgen of the Amity
White Sharks and Castro's teammate Tim Adkinson have pitched
no-hitters, but Castro becomes the first to toss a perfecto!
Asked to comment on his accomplishment, the 23 year old Castro
responded, "Dude, do I like get a bonus for this or somethin'?"
