This is probably the most meaningful catch on the list.
Yesterday was July 23, 2009. It was also the day Mark Buehrle tossed the 18th perfect game in baseball history against the Tampa Bay Rays, becoming the first pitcher to accomplish the feat since Randy Johnson in 2004.
The perfect game would have ended in the top of the ninth if it wasn't for Dewayne Wise, the White Sox center fielder.
ChiSox skipper Ozzie Guillen put Wise in the game for defensive purposes for the ninth, and boy was that the best decision he could ever make.
Gabe Kapler smacked the ball deep to center field. With the ball tailing out, Wise leapt and brought the ball back into the park, maintaining the perfect game and the shutout.
Buehrle went on to get the perfecto, his second career no-hitter and first perfect game.
Wise said after the game the only gratitude he wanted from Buehrle was a hug and a thank you.
There was somewhat of a strange connection between Buehrle's perfect game yesterday and his first no-hitter, which came on April 18, 2007.
He faced the same number of batters in both games (27) and the time stamps of both games were identical. Both games lasted approximately two hours and three minutes.
Also, umpire Eric Cooper worked behind the plate in both of Buehrle's pitching gems, proving that the connection between the supernatural and baseball is alive and well.
And that connection is kept alive through the sparkling defense showcased in each game.
