HS Pitcher From Area Sets State Softball Record By Striking Out All 21 Batters In Perfect Game

It was 21 up, 21 down for a Mahopac softball pitcher who made national news with the most perfect of games.

Mahopac High School softball ace Shannon Becker struck out a state record 21 of 21 batters she faced in a record-setting performance against rival Carmel, allowing no baserunners during her perfect game.

Becker and Mahopac easily won the game over Carmel 8-0. During the game, Becker was tossing the ball more than 60 mph, which is the equivalent of a mid-90s fastball in baseball.

Becker has now struck out 41 batters in her past two starts, also believed to be a first.

Becker has been a softball prodigy for years, and the sophomore has already drawn the attention of colleges attempting to court her talents. She reportedly has an 11-3 record with a 0.28 ERA and 229 strikeouts in 99 innings. She’s no slouch at the plate either, hitting .419.
