We say happy birthday to Don Larsen.    He was born on this day in 1929 in Michigan City, Indiana.    

Don played on several teams and retired with a 81-91 record.    

His big moment came in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.    He pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.     Larsen shut down a great Brooklyn Dodgers’ team that included future Hall of Famers Roy Campanella, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson and Duke Snider, along with power hitter Gil Hodges.     

The game ended on a called strike 3 on Dale Mitchell.
