-  Barker's was in 1981.  The last one before I was born was Catfish Hunter, in 1968.  

-  Ron Hassey caught both Barker and Martinez (1991). 

-  The Yankees went back-to-back with Wells (1998) and Cone (1999).

-  Halladay (2010) really turned his career around when he joined the Phillies.

-  That's Philip Humber next to Halladay. 

-  The last three were all in 2012.  


  1. That's a lot of perfect games since the early 80's. I think if someone just asked me out of the blue how many PG there's been since 1980, I would have guess 6 or 7. But after seeing these names, I definitely remember some of their games.

    1. Yeah, I think it's a bit strange. MLB has really been helping hitters since the late 1990s. But 2 in 2010 and 3 in 2012. Though there haven't been any since 2012, which seems more expected to me.
