On May 26, 1959, Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitches one of the most remarkable games in history. Haddix hurls 12 perfect innings, retiring the first 36 Milwaukee Braves he faces. Haddix loses the perfect game in the 13th, when Felix Mantilla reaches on an error. After a sacrifice bunt and an intentional walk, Haddix surrenders an apparent home run to Joe Adcock. When Adcock passes Hank Aaron on the bases, both men are called out, but Mantilla’s run is allowed to stand.
