|Picture Perfect: Humber Savors Historic Gem
|SEATTLE (AP) -- Phil Humber wanted to share his perfect game, so he stayed up well past midnight to answer every one of the more than 100 text messages he got that offered congratulations.
The right-hander for the Chicago White Sox pitched the 21st perfect game in major league history Saturday, shutting down the Seattle Mariners. He says he responded to all the phone messages and texts he received, and still managed to get to sleep by 1:30 a.m.
Humber got back to his in-between start routine Sunday. He'll next pitch at home Thursday against the Boston Red Sox.
