‘Take Classic Video of the Day: Randy Johnson’s Perfect Game (27 Outs)


Yes, the Big Unit fired a perfecto against the Braves, but so what? It was spectacular.  He became the oldest pitcher in MLB history to throw a perfect game (40-years-old) when he did so at Turner Field on May 18, 2004.

Here is the Braves’ box score from that game. Spoiler: There are a lot of zeros in the “H” column…
