Historical Week


New York Yankees pitcher Domingo Germán turned his career around in just a few hours, achieving a historic milestone in Major League Baseball (MLB). He pitched the 24th perfect game in MLB history, leading the Yankees to an 11-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics. Germán's flawless performance included retiring all 27 batters he faced, striking out nine without allowing any hits or walks. This marks the fourth perfect game in Yankees history, placing them at the top among all MLB teams. The last perfect game occurred 11 years ago, and Germán's achievement ended the longest drought since the period between 1968 and 1981.


2000 Hit Club    

Dodgers' first baseman Freddie Freeman reached the impressive milestone of 2,000 hits in a game against the Astros. At 33 years old, Freeman continues to excel, leading the league in doubles and maintaining a strong batting average. With his contract extending through 2027, he has a promising future ahead. Achieving the elusive 3,000-hit mark would secure his place in the Hall of Fame.
