Does anyone know if A.J. is unique in the history of baseball, catching 2 perfect games?

AJ is certainly unique, but Castro caught Buehrle's perfecto.

This is AJ's second no-hitter that he caught, he did not catch Buerhle's perfect game.

Ron Hassey caught 2 perfect games, 1981,1991.

Caught Len Barker's perfect game on 5-15-1981 for Cleveland at home over Toronto (where attendance was 7,290) and Dennis Martinez's perfect game for Montreal at Dodger Stadium on 7-28-1991.

Don't sweat it, your not the only one that needs to get their facts straight.... the FOX announcer said the same thing. The guy also couldnt pronounce Chris Sale's name until someone corrected him during the commercial.

Haha, how was he pronouncing it? Someone in the gamethread said they couldn't announce Morel either.

Nor could he pronounce the name of the Mariners starting pitcher.

The other guy thought Chris was French or something, called him "Sal-lay" but later got it right.
