A perfect game is defined by Major League Baseball as: 

An official perfect game occurs when a pitcher (or pitchers) retires each batter on the opposing team during the entire course of a game, which consists of at least nine innings. In a perfect game, no batter reaches any base during the course of the game. 

There were 20 of these pitching performances before today, with Philip Humber joining that club as the 21st pitcher to perform such a feat. He helped lead the Chicago White Sox to a 4-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
