Obviously, we can never get the exact odds of a pitcher pitching a perfect game. However, we can use scenarios to determine the odds of pitching a perfect game for that situation. For example, the game is taking place at 7:00 P.M at the pitcher's home stadium. The pitcher's odds of letting a man on base or committing an error each at-bat during a 27 out period is .300. The pitcher's team is guaranteed to score a run. (This is never the case, but were assuming.) The weather is perfect. The pitcher's odds of pitching a perfect game would be, according to my calculations, 0.0065712362363534280139543%. Obviously, this is only one situation. Many perfect games are much more likely to be pitched by better pitchers. I did the best I could just to give you a good idea of the odds of pitchers pitching perfect games. Now you try doing the math to see why they are so rare.
Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan threw seven no-hit games during his career.
As long as the pitcher has pitched to at least one batter previously, a change can be made during an at bat. If the batter is the first batter the pitcher has pitched to, (s)he may not be taken out unless having suffered an injury that the umpires deem is serious enough to warrant being taken out of the game.
A pitcher can be changed during an at bat as long as that pitcher has pitched a full at bat to at least one batter. A pitcher may not be brought into a game and then taken out before pitching one full at bat unless he suffers an injury which the umpires deem serious enough to require off field attention.
