As a perfectionist, I would be much more furious lol. But dang, that’s got to feel like a punch in the gut.

That dude should be penalized or something for giving you the Jim Joyce treatment.

SDS

oh that def still counts. What a douche.

SDS

Too many sore losers that play online. It's pretty sad.

SDS

I'm sorry man, that's rough. Unfortunately I knew exactly where this was going just from reading the title.

SDS

I actually think it’s on you to prevent them from quitting. I’ve thrown 3 perfect games this year when the opponent didn’t quit. In each of them I made sure to never lead by more than 2 runs & to not do anything to enrage him such as bunting or replaying homers, ect...So for me this doesn’t count as a perfect game.

So if I'm throwing a perfect game I shouldn't score too many runs on purpose????? I am sorry but that is one of the craziest things I have ever heard. No one to blame but the clown that dashboarded.

Lol weird strategy, a 2 run lean is by no stretch of the imagination a safe lead, doesn't matter who you're playing against

Haha thank you. This game is way too crazy not to try to get as many runs as you can.

1-0 game. Didn’t bunt dance or watch home runs or anything. He was an RNG hanger away from tying the game.

I’m not too upset about it. Would’ve been my second perfecto of the year and my fourth or fifth no no. Opponent hit like .190 online, and my opponent was ranked 200 points below me, so If it doesn’t count, it’s for those reasons. He was already bunt dancing and brushing back my pitcher so I was expecting it. I’ll give him credit for quitting with one out to go rather than dashboarding when I was about to get the final strike or when a pop up was in the air. Still, I don’t get to bent out of shape about rage quits or dashboards, I’m more proud of the (almost) perfect game then upset about the quit.

SDS

I’m not disagreeing with any of you, It’s absolutely ridiculous...But I’m telling you - Someone is much more likely to stick around if they’re only down a run or two & if you’re not agitating them. Yes, It could cost you the game but that’s when you have to determine what’s more important to you - Securing the win or going for the perfect game?

SDS

Nice work, dude. It definitely still counts

SDS

Just Remember! He knows that you know that he knows he got the Perfecto shoved.

SDS

100% counts, nice work

Hard to believe no one has asked yet... who was on the mound for you?

I would count that for sure and congrats. I really don't get people getting bent out of shape over a game. Some people are just so small minded.
