This article appeared in the Plant City Courier and Tribune, Plant City, Florida. It’s about a little girl, Chelsea Baker (no relation) that did a great job on the field. The article was reported by Arron Oberlin.
So, with all the big names going into the Hall, and quesitons about should he … or maybe not because of this or that … here’s a little girl who all by herself did what we all look to for in honesty, straight forward hard work, and just playing this game of ours on the level.
[i]Chelsea Baker’s jersey is now at the shrine to America’s favorite pastime.
The Turkey Creek Middle School eight-grader presented her jersey Monday to officials at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y. She was wearing the jersey April 9 when she tossed a perfect game for her Brandon Farms team. It was her second perfect Little League game in a year.
“I was just amazed and felt so accomplished to come this far. No words describe how happy I was,” the 13-year-old said of the presentation[/i]
