Latino baseball player Felix Hernandez, known by his fans as King Felix, made history Wednesday when he pitched a perfect game, but not just because it was the 23rd time in Major League Baseball. Retiring all 27 batters in the 1-0 game, Hernandez will also go down in the history books for being the second Latino to ever achieve such a feat.
King Felix joins former pro-ball player Dennis Martinez who pitched a perfect game for the Montreal Expos in 1991. Martinez was also the first Nicaraguan player to join the majors.
Starting pitcher Johan Santana also brought some history to the New York Mets after pitching the team's first no-hitter earlier this year.
