A Gloucester Township 10-year-old tossed a perfect game in his team’s victory last week.

Charlie McGuckin threw six innings in South Jersey Stingrays’ 10-year-old baseball team’s 5-0 win over the Philadelphia Athletics at home on Sunday.

McGuckin struck out 13 of the 18 batters he faced. He threw 59 pitches.

His battery mate for the feat was catcher Anthony Palombi.

A perfect game occurs when a pitcher doesn’t allow any of the opposing players to reach base.

Only 23 pitchers in the history of the major leagues have ever thrown a perfect game, most recently in 2012.
