It was also the year that Leo Durocher was suspended for the entire season. This Subway Series between the two New York rivals features the outstanding performances of many legendary and sensational players: Yogi Berra's historic pinch-hit homer, Lavagetto's hit at the plate which shattered Beven's no-hitter, Joe DiMaggio's clutch homer play, and some wonderful plays be Page and Henrich. The Yankee triumph and win the world championship five out of the next six years. For some of the players like Bevens, Lavagetto, that was their last time they played in the Majors.
