Summary

It was one perfect moment, one singular feat unparalleled in thehalf a century of baseball that followed. It was Game 5 of the 1956World Series. In an age when nobody spat in anyone's face, strikeswere called only on the field, and New York was baseball's battlefield,Don Larsen pitched the only no-hitter ever recorded in theWorld Series. Joe DiMaggio called it the best-pitched game heever saw as a player or spectator. Yogi Berra said he felt like a kidon Christmas morning. And Mickey Mantle said, For one day,Don Larsen was the greatest pitcher in baseball history. Now readers can relive that moment of greatness in the newly revisededition of The Perfect Yankee. With a deft pen and an announcer'senthusiasm, Larsen walks readers through each inningof that miraculous game. A must-read for any baseball fan.
