COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- A 13-year-old girl knuckleball pitcher who has thrown two perfect games against Little League boys teams was honored Monday by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.
"There are no words to describe how happy I was when I found out they wanted to put my jersey in the Baseball Hall of Fame," said Baker, the subject of an ESPN E:60 feature story last month.

Chelsea was taught how to throw the knuckleball by one of the most successful knuckelballers in MLB history, Joe Niekro.
