Almost the ultimate perfect game in Williamsport Never mind
by Bob Timmermann
Garrett Williams of the Lubbock, Texas Little League team struck out the first 17 batters from the Coon Rapids, Minnesota team, but had to leave the game before striking out the final batter because he had reached the pitch count limit.
In the AP story, it appeared that Williams didn't care about missing out on going 18 for 18.
Asked if he knew how many strikeouts he had, Williams said: “No sir, I don’t worry about stuff like that,” adding, “I just concentrate on the mitt and try to get the batter out.”
