Today in baseball: World Series’ first perfect game

Today, sixty-three years ago, Don Larsen accomplished what no-one had ever done before: pitching the first perfect game in World Series history. Game five was a pitchers duel from both sides. Not only did Don Larsen not allow a hit, his opponent, Sal Maglie, allowed only five hits and issued two walks as he gave …

Today in baseball: David Cone goes perfect

On this day, twenty years ago, Yankee pitcher David Cone pitched a perfect game, a feat he didn't manage with Royals, the Mets, the Blue Jays and the Red Sox. On Yogi Berra Day, in a legend-filled Yankee Stadium, Don Larsen threw out the first pitch to 1956 battery mate Yogi Berra to commemorate Larsen's …

Yogi Berra: A legend passes at 90

Cardines Field in Newport, Rhodes Island

In my post about Rickwood Field I wrote that that was the oldes still standing ballpark in the US. Well, today I learned that that is not the case. I have made a correction. It is the oldest standing ballpark where professional baseball is played, even though it is only once per year. The (arguably) …

1955, the season that was next year

                                                                          After the New York Giants won the World Series in the previous year, the Dodgers started the season hopeful as ever. How many World Series had they played without winning one? 1916 and 1920 as the Robins, 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953. In five of these World Series appearances, the hated Yankees were …
