"Home plate umpire Ted Barrett
waits as San Francisco Giants
pitcher Matt Cain
warms up before the ninth inning of a baseball game against the Houston Astros in San Francisco, Wednesday, June 13, 2012. Barrett was behind the plate
Wednesday night when San Francisco Giants' right-hander Matt Cain pitched a perfect game
against the Houston Astros in a 10-0 victory. He also was the home plate umpire when David Cone threw his perfect game for the New York Yankees
in a 6-0 win over the Montreal
Expos on July 18, 1999.
It makes Barrett the first major league umpire to call balls and strikes for two perfect games.
