    My Don Larsen story...

    Met he and his wife a few years ago in Coeur d’Alene, ID at a health facility. I was with my Mother in law; we spent quite a bit of time talking, especially my MIL and his wife. It was a great time talking about their lives together, with very few baseball stories shared.

    Fast forward two weeks, I end up receiving an personalized autographed ball from Don and Yogi Berra, an autographed 16” full color photo of the perfect game and an autographed 8” photo of the hug between him and Berra on the final pitch of the WS game.

    It was a great time, and they were incredibly generous to me and my family.

    RIP Don
