Young Female Knuckleballer Throws BP to Rays



Text  



Via Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times:

The young lady throwing batting practice to the Rays hitters before their home game against the Pirates is 17-year-old knuckleballer Chelsea Baker, a member of Durant High School’s varsity team in nearby Plant City, Florida.

 

 

According to Andrew Astleford of Fox Sports Florida, Joe Niekro taught her how to throw the specialty pitch while she was on a Little League team with the former big leaguer’s son.
