I had the privilege of covering today's perfect game thrown by White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle. Here are a few of the images from this classic game.


IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/dmwierz45/image/115304912.jpg
Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mark Buehrle (56) pitching in the early innings of an MLB game at US Cellular Field between the White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays, won by Chicago 5-0, with Buehrle pitching the first perfect game in 87 years for the White Sox, and only the 18th such classic in MLB history.

Chicago White Sox first baseman Josh Fields (7) hits a grand slam home run in the second inning of an MLB game at US Cellular Field between the White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays, providing the only runs White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle would need on the way to pitching a perfect game and leading the White Sox to a 5-0 victory.

Two images of Chicago White Sox center fielder Dewayne Wise (31) leaping over the wall to catch a ball hit by Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Gabe Kapler preserving pitcher Mark Buehrle's perfect game in the ninth inning of an MLB game at US Cellular Field between the White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays, won by Chicago 5-0. The quality on these two shots suffered a little in the downsizing process - oh well.

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mark Buehrle (56-L) leaps into the arms of White Sox catcher Ramon Castro (27-R) after the final out of Buehrle's perfect game, 5-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mark Buehrle (56 - center) is all smiles after his perfect game 5-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

A shaving creme covered Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Mark Buehrle (56) is greeted by White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen (R in sunglasses) following Buehrle's perfect game 5-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

All in all, quite an experience, and one I will never forget. Buehrle was so dominant that there really were no other exceptional defensive plays other than the catch by Wise in the ninth inning.

Thanks for looking.

The shot of Buehrle jumping at Castro is a sport's photographer's dream photo. Congratulations on getting it and being at that historic game.

Great shots as always Dennis! Those shots w/ Wise are great... the fans expressions are priceless. (And WHY are there fans reaching for the ball!?!)

It was a hell of a catch by Wise to save the perfect game. You see the back of the Sun-Times today? Where you standing next to Jerry Lai? Your shots are almost identical.

I'm going to work the Yankees and Sox next week.

I got to shoot my first Sox game this season in April. Ironically, Buehrle was pitching & took a no hitter into the 7th. The team photographer was joking with a few of us first timers that he'd never shot a no hitter before & we might get to do it on our first shot. it didn't happen, but congrats to you for being able to document one.

Thanks, everybody. Yep, Jerry Lai was next to me in the photo well. In the ninth inning, most of the still photographers headed to positions behind the White Sox dugout, or in one case, up onto the second deck concourse. He and I lucked out as the only two who were in position to get shots of Wise's catch.

The quality on these two shots suffered a little in the downsizing process - oh well.OH, I should be so lucky! I,m not sure what I envy the most the quality of the shots or being in attendance at a MLB perfect game. Every fans dream. Other than the Cubs winning a series.

Great job!

Excellent job Dennis. So what's that, 18 pitchers in all of MLB history to accomplish such a thing?
