Which is why it is the hardest feat in sports to accomplish, because it completely relies on the flawless performance, for a single game, of an entire line up. One miscue by any of your fielders, one poor pitch selection by your catcher, one unlucky call by any of the umpires, and it just another well played game. Yesterday, Braden only K'd six and walked none, his teammates stepped up for the other 21 outs.
Spose this is a good point. But if we talk about 'accomplishments' that are hard, I personally appreciate those that require more personal will/determination. That said I still recognize the absurd difficulty of a perfect game.
