On Sunday, May 17, 1998 at Yankee Stadium, New York defeated the Minnesota Twins 4-0 as David Wells retired every batter he faced. The game took approximately two hours and forty minutes and was played in front of almost 50,000 fans. It was just the 13th perfect game pitched in modern Major League history.

Even John Sterling’s Theeeeee yankees Win” brings tears to me eyes. Maybe it’s pathetic, but the only thing that moves me that much is the enthusiasm of play by play announcers.
Haha… not pathetic. A bit unusual, perhaps, but baseball can be pretty heart-wrenching when it wants to be.
