SEATTLE -- There are good games, and there are great games. Then there are the perfect ones that stick with you for the rest of your life.
Philip Humber will never forget what he accomplished Saturday afternoon. What started with a harmless ground-ball out turned into another out, which turned into another, and another, and another. Twenty-seven outs later, Humber had the 4-0 win over the Mariners. More importantly, he had a perfect game, and his place in the record books.

Awesome effort and game! If you have a chance to catch the replay on comcast sportsnet, do so!
But the New York Mets, celebrating 50 years of failing to have as no-hitter. :) 7.982 http://nonohitters.com/
The White Sox...
And whoever plays the Cubs.
No fan of the White Sox myself, but congrats to him. Was funny watching the coverage, this was at Safeco Field in Seattle, and you had folks rooting against their own home team so they can see a perfect game.
History in the making .... only the 21st in MLB history.
I happened to see that one.
where was that heartbreaker last season?
Phillip is a great kid and worked hard as an undergraduate at Rice. He pitched the winning game in the College World Series for the Owls.
My son and he roomed together their first year at Sid Rich.
I always favor whoever is playing the Yankees and Notre Dame. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?
I hadn't heard of Phil Humber before. Is he Senate material? He's 29 now but will be 30 before the next session of Congress convenes. The Senate has been perfect-game-pitcher-free since Jim Bunning left.
He certainly comes across as a very good man in his post game interviews. Very humble, no pun intended and also seems like a very committed Christian.
Congrats to him, his family and the White Sox.
Also, the Mariners fans were very classy.
Typical White Sox fan. My favorite team is the Cubs but I never root against the White Sox - unless they are playing the Cubs.
You watched the coverage? It was unbearable. FOX can go take a leap. (I only watched the first four innings, and then had to go to work).
Thanks for the posts, especially the nice picture of Humber. I agree that the statements he made after the game were classy. He didn't talk about himself except to say he overthrew a bit in the 9th. Everything else he said was about his teammates and their great play.
Good to see this in today's world.
BTW, the situation with Armando Galarraga was classy also in a sort of twisted way. The ump and Galarraga both handled a bad deal with more grace and courage than I think I could have.
Carthage Bulldog baseball.
Quite a Weekend in Baseball, Fenway Park has the 100th Anniversary the week of the Titanic Centennial as Well, Cincinnati Reds win 10,000 game in Franchise history since 1882 (1869-1880) left out for some reason. Now Humber throws 21st perfect game in Major League history.
Wow. Just watched every out at MLB.com. It is a thing of beauty.
