The late Don Larsen and “el perfecto” from 1956

By the fall of 1956, Cubans were watching The World Series on TV in the island.

As my father told me, they watched Game 5 and Don Larsen’s perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers.  My father said that they had a little TV at the bank and caught the game.

It is still the only post-season perfect game in major league history.

We learned that Don Larsen passed away.  He was 90.  Larsen was born in Michigan City, Indiana, back in 1929.

Don played 14 seasons with various teams: 81-91 with a 3.78 ERA.  He stood out on October afternoon in New York!
