Mr. Perfect

Well, the Tribe starters’ scoreless streak has come to an end at 44 1/3, thanks to the unearned run coughed up by Aaron Laffey in the second inning today.

And speaking of marvelous pitching displays, it’s just been brought to my attention that today is the 27th anniversary of one of the most famous evenings in Indians’ lore — Len Barker’s perfect game against the Blue Jays.

Two years ago, I rounded up memories from some folks who were in attendance for that game, as well as some fans. I figured I’d bring those links to your attention, if you’re so inclined.

If you’d like to read Barker’s memories of the perfect game, check out this link. If you’d like to listen to the original broadcast, check this out.
