    Congrats on your PERFECTO, Matt. Now I have a Giant to share a fantastic feat with my childhood heroes Don Larsen and Sandy Koufax (even tho S.K. was a dratted Dodger).
    Enjoy your vacation in HI and your round of golf with Dustin.

    I get tears in my eyes everytime i see the last out of this perfect game! it was amazing to watch on TV as you made Giants history, no matter where you career goes you will always be remembered as the first pitcher to get a perfect game for this franchise. You are one of the reasons I love calling myself a Giants fan both and raised. Congrats Matt!!! we love you!

    Matt I was so proud of you when you made that final out to become the 1st Giant to ever pitch a perfect game I had chills with a few tears, I would like to also tell you that this ranks above the Championship you guys brought to the bay area. Keep up the great work, and as far as I am concerned next year opening day that spot should belong to you. I am proud to bleed Orange and Black and will never ever bleed anything else.

    Thank you so much for being the example of professionalism and class that you are. You are what athletics should be all about. Going out every start and just doing your best without any sensationalism and trying to draw the attention to yourself. Thank you for the positive example that you set for my son and all children that have the pleasure of watching you compete and leave it all out there very game. Well deserved perfect game with the perfect catcher to share your moment with.

  5. Alexander

    You suck!!!! Just kidding well done Cain, a marvelous performance against the worst team in baseball.

  6. John K

    You have been the best pitcher on this staff for years. You never got any run support in a lot of those years. I always knew you were the best. I am really happy for you and your family. It seems the run support has been coming this season. It just goes to show, with the run support you are the best in baseball. I am forever grateful to the Giants for locking you up with a deserved contract.
    Again thank you Matt Cain. You are number 1 in Baseball.

    50 years from now when a fellow Giants fan asks me, “where were you when Cain threw the first perfect game in Giants history?” I’ll be able to tell them exactly where and with who I was. These are the moments that make sports the greatest thing in the world. Congrats Matt.

  8. Casey

    I still can’t believe what happened that night. Your contributions to the world series championship and your perfect game were unimaginable. I can’t wait to see what you will do next. You are destined for greatness! Wait–scratch that–YOU ARE GREATNESS!!!

    Since you started with the Giants, you have been my favorite pitcher. That night solidified the faith I placed in you in the Giants rotation. You are an amazing pitcher and cannot wait to see what you continue to do for the Orange and Black. Go GIANTS!!!

  11. Pam Bignardi

    Dear Matt –
    I have been a Giants fan since I was a little girl in San Francisco – and even with the cold, windy nights at The Stick, I wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else. Since you joined the Giants, I’ve always said you are a workhorse; a class act and a role model, which is something our children so desperately need! Congratulations on “THE” Perfect Game – if any Giants pitcher deserved this, it is certainly you. I admire you and your ethic. I look forward to many more years being so proud you are on “my team!!” Thank you, Matt, for everything!!


    Congratulations Matt!! Awesome game. Couldn’t be happier for you. You deserved it, and you’re definitely the horse of the pitching staff.

  13. Peggy

    I have been a Giants fan back to the days at the Stick and I have to admit, it was tough. But, I never gave up hope that one day it would all change! And, you have been a huge part of it!! One of the best decisions the Giants made was when they signed you. A World Series and a Perfect Game – amazing!! Thank you for your dedication to your craft and being an outstanding young man and role model to so many kids that need one. I can’t wait to see what the rest of your career will bring you and us. To quote Pablo “unbelievable”!! Congratulations!! Just AWESOME!!

  14. DJessup

    I’ve been a HUGE supporter of you, Matt Cain, ever since you first came up. Over the last 6 1/2 years, I have gone to many of your games and seen you grow into the incredible pitcher you are. Through all the hard-luck seasons to the 2010 Playoffs, you have remained the heart and the rock of the rotation. I look forward to your next 7 years with us!

  15. Joe Lewis Jr

    Since 05 I’ve been a MAJOR Fan of yours & I’ve always said to my colleges, friends, & Family that I felt you were always the guy over looked in the Rotation. All I can say is after this you got yours & I am very happy. Thank you for staying in SF Cain you’re my BOY!!!!!!!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I Hope you Get your Deserving Cy Young soon

  19. Matt

    Matt, been a fan of yours since your first season with the giants, and I can say with confidence that I always knew it would be you to pitch the first perfect game in giants history. Great job, Cain! You have my vote for Cy Young this year! Keep it up!

  20. Colin Matthews

    Well done. Really enjoyed watching the highlights of an epic performance from yourself and the team. It gave me and my boys a huge amount of satisfaction. Just a pity we were not able to watch it live due to the time difference over here in Scotland. A fantastic achievement that will never be forgotten by Giants fans worldwide.

  21. Kim

    Not only are you an amazing young man, you are a great pitcher. My family has been watching you since your Grizzly days and you have always been our favorite. We had seats behind the dugout and you were always so sweet to the kids and fans. Not only did you give my niece a ball, you signed it for her at the end of the game. Not forgetting that you promised her. At Spring training, you again signed baseballs for her. Least to say, she has a Matt Cain Jersey and you have always been her favorite. She is 14 now and you made a huge impact on her. You are what heroes are made of, you are still that young man you were when you started out. Many athletes who become the star you have, forget who they were. You have always been a wonderful role model. Thank you so much for all the memories. Can’t wait to see what you do next.

  22. Beverly Ranis

    I’ve had my Matt Cain jersey for a couple of years now. I felt YOU were the cornerstone of the Giants staff. You have been consistant through the years. Noone is more deserving than you Matt! I also liked the “old school” tip of the hat too. Best wishes to you and God bless you and your family

    for the GIANTS FIRST PERFECT GAME, means that they were just waiting for you!

Thank you for being a Giant, and for your high level of professionalism. Congratulations and Go Giants!

    My family and most others live a difficult stress-filled life these days. Your perfect game reinforced the fact that great things can happen, even when you least expect them to occur. The ” STRONGER THAN DEATH ” will the GIANTS play with daily since our WS season continues to inspire my family daily!!!” My favorite Giant of all time THE THRILL would have it no other way
