1. Don Larsen – 1956
Larsen played a perfect game in the 1956 World Series for the New York Yankees. We’re talking about an achievement that has only ever occurred 22 times in the entire history of MLB. He threw one on the biggest stage of them all so, because of this, he deserves to be on top of this list. This was an iconic baseball moment, nevermind a playoff one.
Dodgers’ fans might not like it, but history only remembers the winners. Larsen was anonymous before Game Five but came alive when it counted. To this day, it remains the only no-hitter and perfect game ever seen in the World Series. Don’t hold your breath for another one either because there was only one other perfect game in a playoff series. This was one of the most remarkable individual performances in sporting history.
