O’Connell is ‘pitcher perfect’ in MCS victory over Windham

By John Bernhardt

Calling off his teammates, nobody doubted it was Margaretville pitcher Patrick O’Connell who would finish the play. When O’Connell’s mitt closed around the ball, the sophomore hurler had accomplished the improbable, recording the final put out of a pitching rarity, a perfect game. Not a single Windham Warrior reached base against O’Connell during the entire seven-inning game.
