Perfect Game: Randy Johnson

Game Recap | Box Score

An infamous late bloomer — who only really became the Randy Johnson we know in his late 20’s and had his best years in his late 30’s — it figures that he would pitch his first perfect game at the age of 40. The previous holder of the most aged perfect game hurler was Cy Young at 37 years of age, one hundred years earlier. It was only the 17th perfect game in modern baseball history and the first since David Cone’s in 1999.
