 Biographical Information
David Wells of the New York Yankees pitched a perfect game against the Minnesota Twins on May 17, 1998.  Wells later admitted to still being hungover and half-drunk from drinking then night before.
Wells was diagnosed with diabetes in early 2007, after years of weight control issues.
Kenny Lofton and Wells share the record for the most different teams in the postseason. Each appeared for six teams through 2007.
On July 21, 2007, aged 44, Wells broke Randy Johnson's record as the oldest pitcher ever to start a game against an older pitcher: he lost to Jamie Moyer of the Phillies. They formed the second-oldest pitching matchup in MLB history with a combined 88 years and 307 days. Only Don Sutton and Phil Niekro in June of 1987 were older.
