Perfect Game

On Father's Day, June 21, 1964, the first Father's Day that my Dad could hold me in his arms (I would have been 5 1/2 months old then), Jim Bunning pitched a perfect game for the Phillies, blanking the Mets 6-0 at Shea Stadium.

After a Hall of Fame career, Jim Bunning became a Senator from Kentucky. This might not be on par with his performance on that long-ago Father's Day, but it's darn near perfect. Thanks, Senator Bunning.
