An inning earlier, in the bottom of the fourth, Mickey Mantle's home run off Sal Maglie had given the Bronx Bombers the only run they would need to defeat their crosstown rivals in Game 5 of the 1956 Fall Classic. Now, in the top of the fifth, Mantle's spectacular running catch in deep left-center field at The Stadium will give Don Larsen the boost he'll need to record the only post-season perfect game in history.
Product FeaturesIt's October 8, 1956, in the South Bronx, and Mantle is about to run down and backhand Gil Hodges' one-out, 400-foot drive in Death Valley. The Pinstripers' 2-0 victory enables them to sweep the 3 series games at The Stadium. They'll lose Game 6 in Brooklyn before notching a 9-0 rout in Game 7 to win the World Championship. For Mantle, 24, the catch caps a terrific season in which he hit .353, connected for 52 home runs and drove in 130 runs to win the Triple Crown and his league's MVP award.
