53 years ago today: Larsen’s perfect game

It happened 53 years ago today, and it hasn’t happened since.

On Oct. 8, 1956 during the World Series, New York Yankees starter Don Larsen pitched a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers. It remains the only post-season no-hitter.

The Dodgers’ Sal Maglie also pitched a gem, giving up just two earned runs on five hits during his eight-inning start.

The Major League postseason drought is just slightly longer than the Mets’ drought – 53 years compared to 48.
