Counting Down a True Rarity: MLB's 20 Perfect Games

Part 12 of 21

11 Mike Witt, California Angels September 30, 1984

California Angels hurler Mike Witt ended the 1984 season with a bang. Playing on the road against the Texas Rangers, Witt tossed a 10-strikeout perfect game to secure a 1-0 win.

The 6' 7" righty's signature pitch was a hard breaking curve ball to go along with a lively fastball. Earlier in the year, Witt struck out 16 hitters in a complete game victory against the Mariners, but he saved the best for last.

Overall, Witt registered a 117-116 mark over 12 years. His best seasons were from 1984 to 1987 when he compiled a 64-44 won/loss record.
