Bobblehead Night Fans at the Ballpark with Don Larsen

Don Larsen (center), baseball's only perfect game pitcher in a World Series, waving to fans at the September 9, 2016 game at Busch Stadium.  

Larsen was signed by the St. Louis Browns and played in St. Louis during the 1953 season. His perfect game was when he was with the New York Yankees on October 8, 1956 against the Brooklyn Dodgers. No other player in the 114 year history of baseball has achieved this feat.
