New Jersey’s Cedar Grove High School softball player Mia Faieta didn’t use the words “monumental” or “history-making” or even “unbelievable” to describe the true perfect game she pitched Friday against North Warren. Instead, she simply said she had a good time.

“This was fun,” the sophomore told News 12’s Sean Reilly after the game that left the reporter’s scorebook looking like a rare work of art.

“I knew as the game kept going on a that I had more and more,” Faieta told Reilly, referring to her unmatched dominance. “I didn’t want to say anything because I didn’t want to jinx it. I had the three in first inning and thought maybe I could keep doing it. Then I realized after a while that maybe it could happen.”

Faieta struck out all 21 hitters in the seven innings that make up full high school softball games. While she knew she had it in her, it took her coach a little longer to realize what was about to happen.

for non baseball fans...a K on a scorecard stands for a........"strikeout"...kind of obvious, and I haven't got a clue where that came from or why it is a K. But what an accomplishment...striking them all out..
