Dallas Braden throws perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Only the 19th perfect game in baseball and I was fortunate to enjoy it in the company of many of my SABR friends. You will all read the stories and watch the replays of Dallas Braden’s game today, but there is no way that can capture the excitement and pure joy of being there AND it being my team.
Just amazing! Our Cubaball friend and El Jefe, Kit Krieger, was in town for the game. His seats were in the A’s family section, right behind Dallas’s grandmother and family! Other SABR folks (most of these folks sitting with Kit) at the game included Mark Macrae, John Moist, Alan, Steve Treder and his wife Pam, Liisa Lyon, Randy Hughes, Kenny, Ed Rimer and Jere Williams.
Thanks to all my SABR buddies who called or wrote about the game. Credit Sacramento SABR leader John Moist for photo.
