Statement from Mayor Emanuel on Phil Humber's Perfect Game

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

Congratulations to Phil Humber of the Chicago White Sox for pitching only the 20th regular season perfect game in the history of Major League Baseball.   It’s an amazing accomplishment, even more so when you consider the injuries and setbacks early in his career and the fact that this was the first time that he tossed a complete game. 

Phil Humber now has a place in baseball history and a permanent spot in the hearts of all Chicago baseball fans.
