This Day in Sports History - 5/8/1968

Catfish Hunter throws a perfect game to give the Athletics a 4 - 0 win over the Minnesota Twins in Oakland. It's the A's first season in Oakland after transferring from Kansas City. And it's the first perfect game by an American League pitcher since Charlie Robertson of the Chicago White Sox blanked the Detroit Tigers, 2 - 0, on April 30, 1922.
