The almost perfect game – by
Mine was back in 1990 or 91 when we were still using Replay cards to play the games. My team then was the Marlboro Cubs and it was a disaster of a team. I believe I gave up a first round pick to get the pitcher Mike Morgan. At the time he was a starter and he had a lot of starts which the Cubs desperately needed. Anyway, there was a game which I played Head to Head with Bob Tierney who then managed the Hokey Eagles. We worked together in the same group and hid away in a conference room over lunch to play our series.
Well Mike Morgan was my starter and for 9 innings he had a "Perfect game", I really mean Perfect. Well the Cubs were so inept we had not scored a run. I tried everything, I even tried Sac bunting and stealing. In those days it was a lot harder to Sacrifice or steal. Well I let Mike start the 10th and what happens the first guy Ozzie Smith hits and Inside the Park Home run and then he retires the side. I don't score in the 10th and lose the game 1 - 0. What a way to lose a Perfect Game.
