Philip Humber throws 21st perfect game in MLB history

It does not happen often, and may not even appear that spectacular as it is happening, but looking back at the end of the game it is clear this is quite a feet.

"Philip Humber, who underwent Tommy John surgery seven years ago, threw the first perfect game in the majors in almost two years, leading the Chicago White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Saturday.

It was baseball's 21st perfect game and first since Philadelphia's Roy Halladay threw one against the Florida Marlins on May 29, 2010. It was the third in White Sox's history, joining Mark Buehrle against Tampa Bay on July 23, 2009, and Charles Robertson against Detroit on April 30, 1922.

"This is awesome," Humber said. "I'm so thankful."
