Alex Fulmer, with two long braids hanging out of her hat, took the mound Monday for the South Carolina Little League team out of Irmo.
She threw 85 pitches before being pulled in the bottom of the sixth inning in a game against Florida — but not before making history.
Fulmer became the first girl to pitch in a Southeastern Region tournament game, according to region officials.
“We’ve had other girls play, but none have pitched,” regional director Jen Colvin said.
Fulmer, 12, was unfazed by the attention. She didn’t know about her place in the history book until it was announced on the public-address system.
