Randy Johnson throws perfect game at age 40, 12 years ago today

Randy Johnson threw the majors’ 17th perfect game, and the Arizona Diamondbacks’ first no-hitter, 12 years ago today.

On Tuesday, May 18, 2004, the 40-year-old Johnson retired all of the 27 Atlanta Braves batters he faced at Turner Field for a 2-0 victory to become the oldest pitcher to throw a perfect game.

It was Johnson’s second no-hitter. His first one thrown back in 1990 was the Seattle Mariners’ first no-no.
