NOTE

The bottom paragrah is not really a valid answer to the question "What pitchers in MLB history pitched perfect games?" whether this was due to a bad call or not, the bottom line is, the stat line reads he gave up 1 hit, hence he did not pitch a perfect game. Not even a no hitter, no matter how bad people want it to be.
