Synopsis: By all accounts, the perfect game pitched by New York Yankee right-hander Don Larsen in the 1956 World Series qualifies as a true miracle. No one knows why it happened, or why an unlikely baseball player such as Don Larsen was the one who tossed it. In The Perfect Yankee, Larsen and co-author Mark Shaw describe for the first time the facts surrounding one of the most famous games in baseball history.

Review: Yankee faithful and haters alike will relish this pitch-by-pitch retelling of one of baseball's most remarkable feats: Don Larsen's perfect game in game five of the 1956 World Series. Larsen, one of the game's beloved figures, has remained humble and unaffected as his record has stood unequalled for four decades. In this book with sports journalist Mark Shaw, he throws in asides on his teammates, his opponents, even the umpires who worked the game. Larsen's memoir recalls a time when nobody spat in anyone's face, strikes were called only on the field, and baseball was still the national pastime.
