FATHER’S DAY 1964: CHECK OUT PHILLIE JIM BUNNING’S PERFECT GAME!

Jim Bunning, the father of nine children, pitched a perfect game on Father’s Day — June 21, 1964 — for the Phillies against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium.

With his wife, Mary, and a daughter, Barbara, in attendance, Bunning retired 27 straight Mets, the first perfect game during major league baseball’s regular season in 42 years.

“It was extra special because my wife and oldest daughter drove to New York from Philadelphia to see the game and they wouldn’t have come up if it wasn’t Father’s Day,” said Bunning. “Of course, the 1964 World’s Fair was right across the street and I really think they came up for that.”
