There's perfection, and then there's perfection.

Twelve-year-old Jacob Terao was the latter on Thursday, throwing a perfect game in a West Seattle Little League game while striking out every one of the 18 batters he faced.

Terao also impressively managed the feat while staying under the league-mandated pitch count of 85. He threw 81 pitches, 54 of them for strikes. His toughest inning was the first, when he needed 16 pitches to strike out the side.

The youngster reportedly kept hitters off balance the entire game with a combination of two- and four-seam fastballs, leading his team, the Rays, to a 4-0 win over the opposing Braves. Not too shabby.
