White Sox Mark Buehrle Pitches Perfect Game

I am not a big baseball fan, but I can appreciate the quality and difficulty of pitching and when I hear about a perfect game, you have to admire the skill. I also like the fact that his teammates also work hard to delivery a perfect game to White Sox left hander Mark Buehrle.
There was a tense moment in the ninth inning, when Dewayne Wise made a spectacular catch at the wall in left center field to preserve Buehrle's gem. Wise sprinted into deep to the wall to take away what would have been a home run off the bat of Gabe Kapler.

The ball almost came out when Wise caromed off the fence, stumbled, fell to the ground and rolled. But he bounced right up, proudly displaying the ball for the crowd in his bare left hand.
Here's the thing, in a couple of years people will talk about Buehrle's perfect game, but almost everyone will forget about the spectacular nature of Wise's catch to preserve the perfect game.
