A Perfect Day

PERFECTION REIGNS

They occurred 23 years apart, but on this day two major Perfect moments occurred.

Nadia Comăneci became the first person in Olympic Games history to score a perfect 10 in gymnastics at the 1976 Summer Olympics.

In 1999, David Cone threw only the 14th perfect game in Major League Baseball’s modern era.
