Perfect Games

(1/3) > >>

Jim Dixon:
Senior pitcher/outfielder John Lunardi from Exton, Pa. pitched a perfect game 1, literally, as Susquehanna swept visiting Drew , 9-0, 12-5, in a Landmark Conference doubleheader at Harold Bollinger Field on March 28. This was the fourteenth perfect game in D-III and the first since April 21, 2007 when Tim Kiely pitched a perfect game against the Tufts Jumbos.

I have to find my list of some others.  I am not sure I know about all 14 perfect games.

34 years of D-III baseball and 14 Perfect games means there should be one every 2-3 years.

I will count Bill Verbrick as #11.

OshDude:
Dan Roberge, Roger Williams vs. Wentworth (7 IP), March 30, 2008.
Cody Flynn, Edgewood vs. Maranatha Baptist (7 IP), May 6, 2006.

The others? According to the '09 record book, there were 12 perfect games before this season. D-III perfect games by season:
'88 (1)
'90 (1)
'96 (1)
'99 (1)
'01 (1)
'02 (2, Verbrick and?)
'04 (2)
'06 (1, Flynn)
'07 (1, Kiely)
'08 (1, Roberge)
'09 (1, Lunardi)

Jim Dixon:
I forgot about Roberge's perfect game.  That makes 15 or is it 13?

I took the figure of 13 from the 2007 Kiely release.  Record keeping as I know is spotty at best so the record book may not be correct so there still could be two missing perfect games.
