Father's Day to remember: Bunning's perfect game of '64

Jim Bunning is the father of nine children, so why wouldn't it be the native of Southgate, Ky. to do something extraordinary, something that had never been accomplished before, and has not been accomplished since on Father's Day, the defining moment of a Hall of Fame pitching career.

Philadelphia's Jim Bunning tosses a perfect game against the New York Mets at Shea Stadium on Father's Day in 1964.
