Default 16 perfect games in baseball history

I think this is a fun question I saw today. I was in the elevator and they had a thing on there that said in baseball history there has only been 16 perfect games in baseball history. Who was it and when?

Well, I know there were back to back years at the end of the 90s... I think 98 and 99.

Wells for the Yanks vs. the Twinkies and Cone for the Mets vs. Expos.....

These are the ones I remember/know of:
2004- Randy Johnson (D'backs)
1999- David Cone (Yankees)
1998- David Wells (Yankees)
1994- Kenny Rogers (Rangers)
1991- Dennis Martinez (Expos)
1988- Tom Browning (Reds)
I'm also pretty sure that Catfish Hunter once pitched a perfect game, but I don't know the year. Sandy Koufax pitched one against the Cubs, I don't know the year on that either. Cy Young might have a perfect game as well.

Duh! I forgot about RJ... What a dolt...

Don't remember Kenny Rogers doing it all.

Also, there was a guy who did it for the Angels when I was like 10 (83 or 84)... I forget his name, though....

Let's not forget April 30, 1922. Charlie Robertson flings perfection, Ty Cobb
crabs and moans about it the entire game. Johnny Mostil, playing left field,
catches a foul pop up for the final out, falling into the stands as he does so.
White Sox 2, Tigers 0.

Carl Everett broke up one with 2 outs in the 9th at Fenway in 2001 off Mike Mussina

I remember that game. I believe he was down in the count 0-2 when he got that single.

Milt Pappas missed a perfect game with a close pitch called a ball on a 3-2 count with 2 out in the 9th for the Cubs in Wrigley.

He still got the no-hitter.

were you there for that game? I'd imagine it was one of the loudest groans in history.
