TURN BACK THE CLOCK

Cecil Whig - - INSIDEBASEBALL -

It’s Yogi Berra Day at Yan­kee Sta­dium, and Yogi re­ceives the cer­e­mo­nial first pitch from Don Larsen, au­thor of the only per­fect game in World Se­ries his­tory (against the Dodgers in 1956, with Yogi as his bat­tery­mate). With that duo look­ing on, David Cone be­comes the 16th pitcher in ma­jor league his­tory and the third Yan­kee to toss a per­fect game when he beats the Ex­pos, 6–0, strik­ing out 10 and never fall­ing be­hind by more than a 2-0 count.
