R.I.P. Don Larsen

Don Larsen is perhaps best known for pitching the only post-season perfect game in Major League Baseball history, accomplishing the feat in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.  He won the World Series MVP Award and Babe Ruth Award in recognition of his pitching during that postseason.

Larsen was born on August 7, 1929 in Michigan City, Indiana.  He passed away in Hayden, Idaho yesterday, January 1, 2020 from of esophageal cancer.

Rest in peace.

 


Enter 2020

I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable New Year’s celebration, and I wish you all the best for 2020!  Go Royals!
