Perfect Games

Thanks to the wonders of MLB.tv, I have had the opportunity to watch parts of or most of the recent no-hitters. As rare as they are, a Perfect Game is an even rarer form of a no-hitter. We’ve compiled the complete list of Perfect Games since 1900, and are in the midst of researching a bit more detail about each. Once we pull together just enough interesting facts about each, we’ll be linking them to individual game posts.
