Perfect Ball

from reelsportsfan
A truly unique and rare opportunity to witness the greatest game ever played at Yankee Stadium. Come see the original TV broadcast of Game 5 of the 1956 World Series when Yankees hurler Don Larsen pitched a perfect game against the Brooklyn Dodgers, a feat that had never been done before or since in World Series play.
The only film of this game in existence has been preserved and shown to only a select number of people. July 10th will be the first time this historic game will be shown in New York City since the game was played nearly 52 years ago. Running time is approximately 2 hours consisting of the game broadcast beginning in the top of the 2nd inning through the final out, including all original commercials, as it aired on October 8, 1956.
Prior to the viewing of the game there will be an appearance and discussion with Baseball Hall of Fame Broadcaster Bob Wolff who called the play-by-play on radio for Larsen’s perfect game.

The Duke almost homered in the fourth inning
