Take Me Out To The Obsessively Fastidious Ball Game

Measure that pitcher.

Shut-Out.  No Runs scored.

No Hitter.  No batter gets to first base by making contact with pitch.

Perfect Game.  No runs, no hits, no advancement to first due to walks (BB) or hit-by-pitch (HBP).

Perfect Perfect Game.  Batter simply makes no contact with pitched balls despite attempts ('Whiffs').

Perfect Perfect Perfect Game.  Batter never swings at any pitch ('Called Strikes')

Perfect Perfect Perfect Perfect Game. Each of 27 batters over 9 innings called 'out' on 3 consecutive pitches (all pitches in strike zone, none swung at).
