The Perfect Game (The Perfect Game, #1) by J. SterlingIsaac is a serious pitcher. He gets close a couple of times, but then a batter gets on base and Isaac totally loses his cool on the mound. Then Isaac learns about a Special Olympics Unified Sports team and meets an interesting athlete who shows him a new way to think about being perfect. Uses scenes from the story and other resources to help students understand and explore the hurtfulness of the word. Twenty-three major league pitchers have thrown a perfect game — 27 straight outs.
