This day in baseball: Wells’s perfect game

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.
