Two others, Ernie Shore and Harvey Haddix, were at one time credited with perfect games under a scoring rule that has since been changed, and Pedro J. Martinez (no relation to the aforementioned Dennis) would have been if the obsolete rule had still been in effect.
Richmond, Shore and Robertson did not pitch the required 10 seasons, and Larsen, Haddix and Barker got no meaningful voting support and are no longer eligible.
Nor was any of them that good a pitcher, though Haddix, in addition to his near-perfecto, won two games in the 1960 World Series, including the one of which nobody remembers anything but Bill Mazeroski's home run.
