Saturday, October 8, 2016 9:42
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On this day in 1956, Don Larsen pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.   

He shut down a great Brooklyn Dodgers’ team that included future Hall of Famers Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson and Duke Snider, along with power hitter Gil Hodges.     

The game ended on a called strike 3 on Dale Mitchell.

Larsen played a few more years and was eventually traded to the Kansas City A’s.   He retired with a 81-91 record.
