Don Larsen, RIP -- January 3, 2020

Korean War vet Don Larsen has died.  On 08-October-1956, he pitched the only perfect game that has ever been thrown in the World Series.  Pitching for the Yankees against the Dodgers' Sal Maglie, Larsen won 2-0.

He pitched for the San Francisco Giants from 1962 to 1964.  In 1962, the Giants finished the season tied for first with the Dodgers.  Larsen won the deciding third game.
