PERFECT. Pitcher Mark Buehrle #56 of the Chicago White Sox reacts in celebration after pitching a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays at U.S. Cellular Field on July 23, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois. The White Sox defeated the Rays 5-0. It was only the 18th perfect game pitched in the majors.

Pretty amazing, when you consider that MLB plays more than 2,400 games per season.

It wasn’t all easy though, and it took a spectacular home-run-stealing catch (complete with a heart stopping post-catch bobble) by Dewayne Wise to preserve the perfect game and no-hitter.
