Only seventeen pitchers in the past 124 years have completed the most rare feat in all of sports - the perfect game. Each perfect game is examined individually with first-hand accounts from the pitcher, his teammates, opponents, coaches, managers and sports writers who were there that day. In addition to the seventeen record-setters, Buckley has researched all the other pitchers who were one pitch from history. Randy Johnson's no-hitter for the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2004 completes this examination of the seventeen unforgettable games.
