May 8, 1968 - Jim (Catfish) Hunter of the Oakland Athletics pitched a 4-0 perfect game against the Minnesota Twins at Oakland Coliseum. There were no difficult plays behind him, but he went to three balls on a batter seven times.  It was the first perfect game in the American League since Charlie Robertson’s for the Chicago White Sox in 1922.
