On October 8, 1956, Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in game 5 of the World Series, shutting out the Brooklyn Dodgers. In the locker room after the game, Larsen said "When it was over, I was so happy, I felt like crying. I wanted to win this one for Casey (Stengel). After what I did in Brooklyn, he could have forgotten about me and who would blame him? But he gave me another chance and I'm grateful."
