Philip Humber does Letterman’s Top 10

Big League Stew

It's become somewhat of a tradition for perfect game pitchers to hit David Letterman in the days following their achievement to record a Late Show Top 10 list. Mark Buehrle did it. So did Dallas Braden. Roy Halladay would have done it had he been programmed with a sense of humor before leaving the pitching robot factory where he was created.

[Philip Humber claims unexpected place in MLB history with perfect game]

Anyway, it was Philip Humber's turn on Monday night. The list probably could have been a little funnier, but there's a few laughs sprinkled among what I assume are inside jokes between Dave and his regular viewers:


As you might imagine, the Chicago White Sox right-hander has been in high demand ever since throwing a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners on Sunday. Not only did he get a spot on late night, but he also received a call from President Obama and a text from Tim Tebow.

His next start comes in Chicago against the Boston Red Sox on Thursday with the White Sox pricing certain tickets at $9 and $27 in his honor.
