Perfect Game
A PERFECT GAME is defined by Major League Baseball as a game in which a pitcher (or combination of pitchers) pitches a victory that lasts a minimum of nine innings and in which no opposing player reaches a base . Thus, the pitcher (or pitchers) cannot allow any hits , walks , hit batsmen , or any opposing player to reach base safely for any other reason: in short, "27 up, 27 down". The feat has been achieved 23 times in MLB history – 21 times since the modern era began in 1900, most recently by Félix Hernández of the Seattle Mariners on August 15, 2012. A perfect game is also a no-hitter and a shutout . A fielding error that does not allow a batter to reach base, such as a misplayed foul ball, does not spoil a perfect game. Weather-shortened contests in which a team has no baserunners and games in which a team reaches first base only in extra innings do not qualify as perfect games under the present definition

Left-handed
HANDEDNESS is a better (faster or more precise) performance or individual preference for use of a hand, known as the DOMINANT HAND; the less capable or less preferred hand is called the NONDOMINANT HAND. Handedness is not a discrete variable (right or left), but a continuous one that can be expressed at levels between strong left and strong right. There are four types of handedness: left-handedness, right-handedness, mixed-handedness and ambidexterity . Left-handedness is somewhat more common among men than among women

2005 Major League Baseball Season
The 2005 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL SEASON was notable for the league's new steroid policy in the wake of the BALCO scandal, which enforced harsher penalties ever than before for steroid use in Major League Baseball. Several players, including veteran Rafael Palmeiro , were suspended under the new policy. Also, every team in the NL East division had at least 81 wins (at least half of the 162 games played). It was also notable for being the first season featuring a baseball team in Washington, D.C. for more than 4 decades, with the Washington Nationals having moved from Montreal. The season ended when the Chicago White Sox
