Don Larsen's Perfection

The first, and only, perfect game in the history of the World Series. It's got to be on just about everyone's list of must-see moments, and it tops the list for Cleveland Indians pitcher Chris Perez. Larsen hadn't been so wonderful during his first appearance in the 1956 Series (four runs and four walks in an inning and two-thirds in Game 2), but he retired 27 straight Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5, including pinch hitter Dale Mitchell with two outs in the ninth.
