Cone throws perfect game for Yankees, 16 years ago today

The New York Yankees David Cone threw a perfect game against the Montreal Expos, 16 years ago today.

July 18, 1999 was Yogi Berra Day at Yankee Stadium, as fans celebrated the beloved catcher’s return to the historic ballpark. Cone marked the day by retiring 27 straight Expos for a 6-0 win.

It was just the second Yankees perfect game since Berra celebrated the 1956 World Series perfecto with Don Larsen. (David Wells threw one in 1998.)
