It was on this day during Game Five of the 1956 World Series
against the Los Angeles Dodgers that New York Yankees pitcher Don Larsen threw a
perfect game. Not only was this historical event the only perfect game in World
Series history, it was also the only no-hitter of any kind to be pitched in
postseason play until Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies pitched a
no-hitter game on October 6, 2010. Larsen won the World Series Most Valuable
Player Award and Babe Ruth Award that same year as well.
