Watch all 27 outs of Felix Hernandez’s perfect game in six minutes (video)

On Wednesday, Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez achieved baseball immortality when he set down all 27 Tampa Bay Rays batters he faced for a 1-0 masterpiece at Safeco Field. It was the 23rd perfect game in major league history and amazingly, the 3rd one this season.

With the Mariners once again struggling this season, one of the few bright spots for M’s fans has been Hernandez and even the non-die-hards tune in to watch him pitch. Unfortunately, many of us outside the Seattle and Tampa markets were unable to see King Felix’s perfect game in its entirety, so MLB.com did the next best thing and put together a video comprising all 27 outs he recorded on his way into MLB record books.

Now that’s an efficient way to watch a historic baseball game. Leaves me plenty of time for a nice nap.
