When I was a kid, it somehow got stuck in my mind that a perfect inning meant getting three outs on three pitches. One day my older brother mentioned that the Reds' pitcher had just pitched a perfect inning. I vehemently disagreed and offered up my understanding of what a perfect inning was. He laughed at my ignorance. And so we went to my dad to settle the dispute. He agreed with my older brother and kinda chuckled. My life has spiraled sadly downhill ever since.
