This is a RANT!!
I read several articles about Randy Johnson today. The all listed all the perfect games pitched. Several of them stated that two of them were thrown in 1880 before the modern era began in 1900
. THIS IS MY BIGGEST PET PEEVE IN BASEBALL!!!!
Nothing happened in 1900 to make the game "modern". If anything the game became "modern" in 1893 when the pitching mound was moved back to 60'6". This is just the stupidest artificial distiction in baseball. As always the 19th century ball players get jobbed!
