Where did so many years go?  
 
Dennis Martinez was perfect on this day in 1991.  
 
Dennis was born in Nicaragua and came up in the Orioles’ farm system in 1976.  He won 108 games with Baltimore, including playing in the 1979 and 1983 World Series.  

In 1987, he was traded to Montreal and that was really the prime of his career, including an ERA title and the aforementioned perfect game.

Dennis retired in 1998:   245 wins, a 3.70 ERA, 122 complete games and 30 shutouts.
