david wells perfect game

On this day; May 17, 1998, David Wells of the New York Yankees pitched a perfect game

Twenty-two years ago, David Wells pitched the 15th perfect game in Major League Baseball.  The lefty accomplished this feat against the Minnesota Twins at Yankee Stadium.  After the game, Wells comically said something to the effect of, “I knocked down 27 straight hitters, then I went out and knocked down 27 Heinekens.”
