On August 5, 1932, Detroit righty Tommy Bridges retired the first 26 batters against the Senators. Dave Harris was sent in as a pinch-hitter by Washington manager Walter Johnson, and banged out a single to ruin the perfect game bid. The following season, Bridges hurled two more one-hitters.
"I could have had my release any time," Bridges told The Sporting News in 1946 after the Tigers let him go in mid-September. "The club consented to give it to me now. They paid me in full. I didn't ask to be restored as coach. By the way, if I had it to do all over again, I'd choose Detroit as my club."
