HERE. The reason? To help out his grandchildren, currently in high school and college. He's giving back to his family and to be honest, you can't beat this!
HERE, we love the guy! But now, I bring you Don Larsen. Enjoy this, I did.
Don Larsen: "I had mentioned it to Mantle at the end of the 7th inning, 'Mick, look at the scoreboard.' Wouldn't it be something? 2 more innings to go, I'm thinking, I shouldn't have said anything!"

BYB: Which Yankee were you closest to during your playing days with the Yankees club?
Don Larsen: "Probably Hank Bauer, and also Moose Skowron who we've lost. They were great teammates."
Don Larsen: "That's one of those things I'll never forget with Yogi and I. What it meant to us then, and what it'll mean to us as time goes on; it'll never be forgotten."
Again, a special thanks to Al Malafronte and of course Don Larsen. Also I want to mention "Perfect Pitch", a charity named in Mr. Larsen's honor. For more information about "Perfect Pitch", you can visit their website by just clicking HERE.

We will be placing "Perfect Pitch" on our website next to all the other great charities we love!
We hope the Bleeding Yankee Blue readers enjoyed this. It was an honor to have Mr. Larsen and "Perfect Pitch" be part of the BYB family. Thank you.
