Benito Santiago's 11-year-old niece strikes out 19 batters | MLB.com: News -
Soup in a TARDIS
"Fanning 19 hitters over six innings is something most MLB pitchers can only dream about. So it came as a huge shock when the incredible feat was accomplished by Nadia Diaz on Saturday. The 11-year-old Little Leaguer and most dominant player in the Southside American Little League of Syracuse, N.Y., throws a 60 mph fastball. There are only 18 outs in a six-inning game, but she struck out four in one inning when her catcher dropped a third strike and the batter reached first. But it's not exactly a shock Diaz is so dominant. She has baseball in her blood. Literally. She's the niece of former catcher Benito Santiago and second cousins with right-hander Nelson Figueroa. One of her favorite Red Sox is Big Papi, so she has been given the nickname "Big Mama." All we have to say is watch out boys, this is Big Mama's house." -
