87 y.o. Don Larsen Takes the Mound Again at Sportsman's Park

North St. Louis, Mo.  -  Don Larsen rekindled old memories, walking around Sportsman's Park on September 10, 2016.   Don pitched over 100 innings at the field in 1953 for the St. Louis Browns.  "Sportsman's" is now a youth football field.

In the background of this shot, is the YMCA building on Grand Avenue, where a lot of Cardinals and Browns, and newly-arriving rookies, crashed. Still a YMCA. Larsen was visiting fans in the St. Louis area and took time to visit the location along with a Cardinal ball game that evening.
