120 Years Ago Today, 5/5/1904, Cy Young Pitches the 1st Perfect Game

Recommended Posts


In the World Series era.


Rather than celebrate a foreign country's battle victory...I prefer this accomplishment. I'll raise my glass to Mr. Young today!

The award for the best pitcher in his league is literally named after Cy Young, so his presence on this list should not exactly come as a surprise. The right-hander first accomplished the feat in the first half of a doubleheader in September of 1897, and seven years later he one-upped himself by throwing a perfect game against the Philadelphia Athletics. Young would add the 3rd no-hitter in 1908.
