Pitch Perfect: Little Leaguer Makes Morristown Championship History
John Meehan capped off a wild ride with the perfect ending.
It was a perfect ending to an amazing MAALL season.
John Meehan, of Morris Township, made baseball history back in June while competing in the biggest game of his young life.
Editor’s note: While this event happened four months ago, warm weather news is always welcomed when the temperatures drop.
It was June 14 and the young men of Longo Electric were taking the diamond at Ginty Field against the favored and top-seeded Agway in the Morristown American Little League’s Majors Championship game.
Meehan took to the mound hoping he could help his team stay in the game and give them a shot to win in upset fashion. What he did was perform to perfection.
In just 65 minutes and with only 59 pitches, Meehan retired all 18 batters in his six innings of work, tossing the first perfect game in championship history since the league’s inception in 1953.
Meehan’s teammate, Brendan Tierney, bunted for a single in the top of the sixth inning to get on base. Tierney worked his way around the bases until Shane O’Neill’s RBI groundout brought him home, breaking the scoreless tie.
Thanks to the lone run, Meehan got out of the game in perfect fashion not only with a championship trophy, but a piece of history to claim as his own.
