Pitcher Perfect!

070418_whiteSox_vmed_8p_widecMark Buehrle notched the 18th perfect game in MLB history today, in front of a frenzied crowd at U.S. Cellular Field.  Probably the most amazing part of the game did not come from the last out, but from the first out in the 9th inning.  Gabe Kapler came to the plate and hit a deep fly ball to left center field.  To the naked eye, it appeared to be a home run, before Center Fielder Dwayne Wise leaped up over the wall and made an unbelievable snow-cone catch, the ball popping out of the glove, and then catching with his bare hand.  There is not much to say about this feat.  Congratulations Mark Buerhle, I am excited for you, even if I am a North-sider!
