PLANT CITY – Chelsea Baker, a 13-year-old Plant City Little League pitcher who has thrown two perfect games in a year, got some nationwide TV exposure this week.

She was profiled by ESPN‘s primetime newsmagazine “E:60” that aired for the first time July 20. The segment will air again periodically on ESPN and ESPN Classic, and also is available at http://sports.espn.go.com/broadband/video/clip?id=….

Her story is narrated by actress Geena Davis, who said Chelsea’s tale was magical, including her knack for “baffling and befuddling the boys.”

“Chelsea Baker is the only girl on an all-boys Little League team,” Davis said in the 10-minute profile. “At age 13 she may be the best Little League pitcher in the country. She has not lost a game in four years.”
