Perfect Games
Words alone cannot describe pitching's top "club" and most desired goal — the masterpiece of any career, the pinnacle of the pitching aspect and one of the most difficult feats to achieve in the entire game of baseball is the perfect game.

What is a perfect game in baseball? Author Paul Dickson in The New Baseball Dictionary (1999) describes it best with, "A no-hitter in which no opposing player reaches first base, either by a base hit, base on balls, hit batter, or fielding error; i.e., the pitcher or pitchers retire all twenty-seven opposing batters in order."



My son Jake invited me to go to the game because he predicted a great pitching duel.



Never in anyone’s wildest imagination did we expect a perfect game.



It was a once in a lifetime experience.



I took a photo of the board when it lit up with the news.



The noise was deafening.



WOW!
