The real question now for high school pitcher Michael Delio is Where are the Yankees?
Delio, a Long Island junior making his first varsity start, tossed a perfect game and struck out all 21 batters to lead Carle Place to a 15-0 win over Hempstead Tuesday in non-league game, reports Newsday.
"I've had dreams of throwing no-hitters and perfect games but nothing like this," Delio said after the amazing feat. "This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
Delio, who pitched on junior varsity for the previous two seasons, said his strategy was to get ahead early in the count with fastballs on the corner and then attack with his knuckle-curve.
"I just stayed focused," said Delio, whose fastball was in the mid-80s Tuesday. "I wanted to locate my pitches, get my curveball down in the zone and just play baseball."
Sounds like a perfect game plan.
