Quick Hit: Remembering The Braden Perfect Game

On this day in 2010 Oakland Athletics pitcher Dallas Braden threw a perfect game "for the 209" which was the 19th perfect game in major league history.  The Athletics beat the Rays 4-0 in Oakland on Mother's Day with his grandmother, who raised him after his mother died from melanoma during his Senior year in High School, was in attendance. This was just weeks removed from Braden and Alex Rodriguez getting into it and Braden becoming infamous for his "get off my mound" comments. Braden is now out of the game, well Rodriguez is too but for an entirely different set of circumstances, but will always have this day in major league history.
