On this day in 1956, and front of the world, Don Larsen threw a perfect game in Game 5 of the World Series.
More than 50 years later, this game is still talked about during each post-season. Many consider this pitching performance by Larsen to be the greatest single-game performance in baseball’s great history.
In Yankee Stadium, and with 64,000+ fans behind him, Larsen and his teammates were battling their cross-town rivals, the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Larsen’s numbers looked like this:
9 innings pitched. 0 runs allowed. 0 hits given up. 0 walks. 0 base runners.
A truly remarkable and historic event!!! Happy Anniversary Mr. Larsen!!!!
