Taunton Little Leaguer Pitches Perfect Game
Twelve-year-old Noah Leonard pitched the first perfect game in 28 years on Tuesday.
According to WHDH, Noah faced eighteen batters, striking out each one, making it the first perfect game in Taunton in 28 years.
“I just threw all fastballs,” said Noah. The catcher, Sean Bunker, was completely unaware of what was going on until the last inning.
Kevin Gobin, the team’s manager, said that he did not want to jinx him so, “I just kept my mouth shut.” Noah’s father, Billy, was also superstitious about the situation saying that he leaned on the same fence each inning.

Great job Noah! Maybe some day we will see you play at Fenway.
