“UNBELIEVABLE! I really can’t believe what I just witnessed. I’m still shaking. It’s an incredible individual and team accomplishment. There have been only 23 perfect games in 210,000 MLB Games. Do the math and you will realize how near impossible this is at any level.” beams Prospects Managing Partner Patrick Cassidy!
Congratulations Rich! You sure know how to snap a team’s 6-game losing streak with style!!
