In Major League Baseball, the shutout--a game in which a team prevents its opponent from scoring--remains relatively rare. Of the roughly 200,000 regular season games that have been played since the origins of the major leagues, only approximately 10 percent have been shutouts. Clean fielding, incredible pitching, and the combined efforts of a team that turns its talent into a work of baseball artistry must all come together to make a shutout possible. This work covers every shutout from the beginning of professional baseball through the 2010 World Series, including no-hitters and perfect games. With in-depth statistics and play-by-play descriptions to bring to life the action on the field, it is the definitive history of one of baseball's premier achievements.
