Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
The 1956 World Series, famous for Yankee Don Larsen's pitching the only perfect game in World Series history, is documented on this video. In addition to the highlights from Larsen's remarkable Game Five achievement, you will see the baseball greats from the New York Yankees and their rivals, the Brooklyn Dodgers, play some of the best baseball ever. You will watch both the Yankees' Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra hit three home runs in the series and Dodgers' Jackie Robinson swing the bat for the last time in a professional ball game as he retires from the Major Leagues. Game Six had to be decided in the tenth inning, after nine straight innings with no score but Game Seven proved to the world -- and to the Brooklyn Dodgers -- just how good the New York Yankees were.
