"Winning the game was more important than my personal feats, to me!"
On the most recent episode of my podcast, Unplugged with Brandon Steiner, I spoke with New York Yankees legend Don Larsen.
Don is one of the few players in history who can say they were "perfect." Playing through one of the most exciting eras in Yankees history, he pitched arguably one of the the greatest games in baseball history when he threw a perfect game in the 1956 World Series.
In this episode we discuss:
- Having a job in the offseason
- The morning of his perfect game
- Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams and Casey Stengal
- What his perfect game meant to his life
- Thoughts on Aaron Judge
- Old Timers' Day ovation reaction
- ...and more.
