July 28, 1994: It took a diving catch from Rusty Greer, but it happened: On this day 18 years ago, Kenny Rogers -- the Texas Rangers lefty, not the chicken guy -- threw the 12th perfect game in Major League Baseball history, against the California Angels.

(To celebrate, years later, the Roasters installed a large glowing sign outside a New York apartment.)
