You may be referring to "Merkle's Boner" in which he did not step on second base but ran off the field to avoid a mob but was later called out.
In September 1908, the Cubs were at the Giants. With a 1-1 score in the bottom of the 9th, the Giants had runners on first and third with 2 outs. The runner on first base was Fred Merkle, a 19-year old rookie. The guy at the plate lined a single into the outfield; the runner on third came home, apparently getting the win for the Giants. The fans swarmed the field...Merkle saw his teammate touch home and figured the game was over so he hustled off the field to avoid the mob. But since there were 2 outs, a forceout at second base ends the inning and the run does not count, even if it crosses before the forceout is made.
The Cub secondbaseman Johnny Evers ran to the outfield to get the ball and touch second. A fan allegedly picked it up and threw it as far away as he could to prevent it. Evers eventually did come up with a ball, showed it to the umpires and stepped on second base. The umpire called the out and since order couldn't be restored the game ended in a 1-1 tie.
Because of the tie the Giants and Cubs ended up tied for first place. The Giants lost the 1-game playoff and the Cubs went on to the World Series.
No. The definition of a perfect game is that no one reaches base in any way for the entire game, even if that runner is thrown out on the same play. If the second baseman makes an error and allows someone to reach first base, even if the runner tries for second base and gets thrown out, the perfect game is over. It becomes a no-hitter.
