On moving day, this family took Matt Cain’s perfect game as a sign for the better

Signs are an important part of baseball. They can signal fastballs and knucklers, delayed steals and the hit-and-run

The Marin Family saw a different type of baseball sign back in June, when Matt Cain threw a perfect game on the day they moved from San Francisco to Houston.

"We got on a plane five hours after he threw his perfect game, and we took it as a sign that everything was going to be perfect in Texas," Rikki Marin said. 

At Minute Maid Park to watch the Giants take on the Astros in their new hometown on Thursday, the Marins said the sign has been correct so far.
