Tells of MLB pitcher Jim Bunning's perfect game at Shea Stadium while pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies. This was the first time a perfect game had be thrown in the National League in 84 years. He also became the first pitcher in modern baseball history to throw a no-hitter in both leagues.
Nice to have in a Detroit newspaper, the city where he spent most of his career pitching for.
Other news of the day throughout. Little spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
