No. 14 May Be In Troble

On Father's Day, 1964, Jim Bunning made history for the Phillies when he pitched a perfect game against the Mets. Bunning had a funky delivery and decent enough stuff to be an effective pitcher for the Tigers and Phillies. He won 20 games for the Tigers and 19 games several times for the Phillies. I probably saw him pitch 10 or 15 times.

Bunning is now a U.S. Senator from Kentucky (Republican) and looks to be facing a major challenge. I liked him as a baseball player, but would love to see the Dems grab another Senate seat.
