May 17, 1998: New York Yankees pitcher David Wells throws the 15th perfect game in MLB history and second in franchise history.
Wells threw 11 strikeouts against the Minnesota Twins en route to a 4-0 win. The only other perfect game in Yankees history came from Don Larsen in the 1956 World Series.
In an interesting twist, Wells and Larsen are both alums of Point Loma High School in San Diego.
Wells finished the season 18-4 and was third in the voting for the A.L. Cy Young award behind Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez.
The Yankees got another perfect game the next season from David Cone.
