Perfect Gamers

This page is similar to the Hall-of-Famer list, but is an examination of the minor league careers of pitchers who have pitched a perfect game. For now, I’m only going as far back as Len Barker’s ’81 game, and there are a few reason for this. The next most recent games before Barker were Catfish Hunter in ’68 and Sandy Koufax in ’65. Coincidentally, both Hunter and Koufax are on the relatively short list of players who began their careers in the major leagues without any minor league experience. Thus, there is no minor league career to examine. Before Koufax, the hurlers who tossed perfect games came through the minors in the pre-upheaval era. Maybe some day I will get to those guys, but for now, check out the pages of these perfect-gamers.
