A month before softball season began, Scottsdale Desert Mountain coach Rick Sharp couldn’t stop gushing about an incoming freshman pitcher from Phoenix St. Mary’s.

Dallas Escobedo is 6-feet tall, threw a no-hitter on Wednesday night with 17 strikeouts, then turned 14 years old Thursday.

If not for Gilbert Highland’s Talor Haro and Casey Edmondson - who, by, the way, are terrific players in their own right – Escobedo would have thrown a perfect game.

She’s the real deal, and she’s only going to get better and better.

If that’s possible.
