Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay became just the 20th pitcher in major league history to throw a perfect game, but after analyzing video of his performance, the former Cy Young award winner deemed it “a stark reminder that I still have a lot of work to do.”

Halladay watched the replay of his perfecto several times and noticed at least 72 separate imperfect acts through his perfect nine innings of work.

“I’m completely embarrassed right now and feel like I owe everyone an apology,” said Halladay, who still refuses to acknowledge his historic outing as a perfect game. “People say I’m being too hard on myself, but I can’t justify calling that a perfect game when I threw 43 balls. I just wish I could hit the reset button and try again.”

Though Halladay managed to find several dozen imperfections with his own performance, the Phillies ace also mentioned that he found at least 6,804 imperfections in the Phillies offense throughout the game.
