Local Legend Fans 27

In one of the most dominating pitching performances by any player in any league, a local high school star threw a 27-strike out perfect game.

Josh Drabek of Hennoqui High School struck out a national record 27 batters en route to a 3-0 victory over Medford Bay High this past Friday.

Drabek, a sophomore, used a variety or pitches varying from a 90+ MPH fast ball to a wicked 47 MPH knuckleball.
What makes his pitches even more potent is that Drabek can throw both over hand and submarine keeping batter virtually clueless on the type of pitch thrown.

This is Drabek's first year on his varsity team and was on the freshman team last year posting a 7-2 record with 59 strike outs and a 1.86 ERA. This year he is at an undefeated 7-0 with 84 strike outs and a dental floss thin 1.54 ERA.

The Hennoqui Pioneers (11-1) has qualified for the regionals tournament coming in late May.
Drabek has already talked to scouts from the Yankees, Mets, and Orioles, but nothing significant has arose from that.

Josh lives in the next town over from where I am located and I will try to get an exclusive interview with him about his perfect game and what he was talking about with the scouts.
