The great Brooklyn-Yankee rivalry of the 1950s is the backdrop for the story of Don Larson's perfect game in the 1956 World Series. Paper takes us through the game and provides mini-biographies of each of the players.
Some of the stories are quite familiar to fans of those teams, but there is plenty of history about each player that will be unknown to most. It helps to appreciate this book if you happen to be an older baseball fan from the New York area.
This is a nice choice during baseball season.
