In ASA National Play, he hurled close to 20 shutouts and 8 no hitters, including 4 perfect games.

In ISC World play, he had another 21 shutouts with 3 no hitters and 2 perfect games.

In State and regional play, he probably had another 15 no hitters and 10 perfect games.

He saved his best for the big stage.  In what is still considered the greatest pitching performance of all time in the 1972 ISF World Championships, he pitched an incredible 1-0 win over New Zealand and its ace pitcher, Kevin Herlihy, in 20 innings. For 18 2/3 innings Stofflet had a perfect game before a batter was hit by a pitch. Stofflet had two of the five hits off Herlihy including the game’s only RBI with a single in the top of the 20th inning. Stofflet finished with an incredible 32 strikeouts in a game.

He was a pitcher with no equal and what people fail to realize it that he also had a career batting average of over .300.
