Don Larsen
Starting Pitcher, New York Yankees
1956 World Series, Game 5

Pitching for the Browns in 1954, Larsen led the majors with 21 losses; pitching for the Yankees two years later, he tossed the only perfect game in postseason history. Larsen struck out seven batters, including pinch-hitter Dale Mitchell to end the game. The performance was a far cry from his Game 2 start, when he didn't last past the second inning in a 13-8 Dodgers victory.
