Matt Cain Throws a Perfect Game
by Mizuno USA on June 14, 2012
No runs. No hits. No walks. No baserunners. 27 up. 27 down. Perfection. That's what Mizuno Brand Ambassador and San Francisco Giants Pitcher Matt Cain did on June 13th against the Houston Astros. The Giants ace recorded the first perfect game in Giants franchise history, and just the 22nd perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball, as the Giants soundly defeated the Astros 10-0.
Cain has been a Mizuno Brand Ambassador throughout his professional career. The two-time All Star now has a Perfect Game to go along with his World Series Championship in 2010. Mizuno would like to congratulate Matt on this historic accomplishment. We are proud to support you every step of the way.

A magician with a baseball bat and a career batting average of .324, Todd Helton is considered one of baseball's truly elite hitters. He ranks seventh all time in career average amongst players from baseball's "modern era." The 15-year-veteran Colorado first baseman has long been known for his versatility at the plate to deliver in every situation, whether hitting the long ball or moving a runner over with surgeon-like precision. Helton is a five-time All Star, four-time Sliver Slugger and three-time Gold Glove winner who reached a pinnacle in 2000 when he captured the batting title with a .372 average (while also leading the league in RBI). His elite-athletic status is underscored by the fact that he was a two-sport athlete and Quarterback for the University of Tennessee, prior to his professional baseball career.
