Relive one of the greatest moments in New York baseball history with this ceramic 11oz mug depicting this play:
1956 World Series Game 5
Larsen's perfect game
New York vs Brooklyn
2 - 0
8 October, 1956
Only 23 pitchers have tossed a perfect game in MLB history and only one pitcher has ever done it in a World Series: Don Larsen. The 1956 World Series was a repeat of the 1955 World Series between New York and Los Angeles. It would be the last all New York World Series for 44 years. Brooklyn started strong winning the first two games, but New York pitchers threw 5 complete games in games 3 - 7 to cap off a comeback and win their 17th Championship. The crowning pitching achievement came in Game 5 when Don Larsen threw a perfect game. His last pitch was a strike to pinch-hitter Dale Mitchell, which gave Larsen his 7th strikeout of the game and of course, perfection.
