The complete list of Division I college baseball perfect games since 1959

2023 college baseball season preview with D1Baseball's Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers

It's one of the most exclusive clubs in all of baseball: Pitchers with a perfect game under their belts.

A perfect game is the ultimate single-game achievement for a pitcher, requiring them to retire all batters without a single one reaching base. That means no hits, walks, hit batsmen, or errors. Twenty-seven up, 27 down.

CWS 101: How the College World Series works

Since 1959, there have been just 36 perfect games pitched in Division I college baseball, though 15 of those came in seven-inning games, and one came in a five-inning game.

The first perfect game was recorded in 1959 when Maryland's Dick Reitz blanked Johns Hopkins in a 10-0 win. The most recent came in 2022 also from Maryland, as Ryan Ramsey struck out 10 batters against Northwestern and completed the second perfecto in Terps baseball history in a 13-0 win.
