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.
