My favorite tweet of the night, from @SportsPickle:
Matt Cain failed to strike out 13 of the batters he faced. Sad how the word “perfect” means nothing anymore.

Since this blog is about baseball simulation games, I thought I’d ask, have you ever had a pitcher throw a Perfecto in one of your games?
The idea of “The Perfect Game Club” is intriguing to me. In fact, I’d like to start a club, right here on oneforfive.com. It would have no qualifications for membership, except that to enter, you must roll a no-hitter or perfect game using the baseball simulation game of your choice.
The club would be just a page, right here on the site, where anyone who ever had a pitcher throw a no-hitter or perfect game could immortalize that game forever. Just a list with minimal details, maybe something like this:
and maybe a screenshot of the boxscore or something and, of course, a link to wherever you happened to write up the game story, be it your blog, a forum, wherever.
Would anyone be interested in seeing your name on a list like this? I’d be glad to get it started as soon as some names and details start coming in. Maybe we should limit the club to all no-hitters that take place from this day forward, too, so that even you guys who have already had your day in the sun have something to shoot for.
What do you all think? Leave comments and suggestions, please!
