Zack Shannon does many things very well on the baseball field, but the single most memorable thing he has done at a Perfect Game event was on a pitch he almost never throws.

After starting the game at first base for the West team at the 2013 PG All-American Classic, Shannon was brought into the game to close out what was then an 8-5 ball game. The East brought the game a run closer when Michael Gettys doubled and later scored on a wild pitch. Jackie Robinson High School Player of the Year Nick Gordon came up with two outs, and a runner on third base, representing the tying run.
