Nine/Thirty/Twenty-Seven by William Feldman
Nine/Thirty/Twenty-Seven
For most of the '27 season, the spotlight focused on Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth as they matched home run for home run. In fact, the Yankee teammates each had 44 round-trippers through September 5. Until then, little attention had been paid to Ruthís single-season record of 59 home runs in 1921. That all changed, however, as September moved along. Gehrig tailed off; Ruth went on a tear. Indeed. Through the 28th of the September, Ruth had walloped 14 homers in the month for a total of 57 on the season. Now, with three games remaining against the Washington Senators at Yankee Stadium, Ruth had a chance to break his record. And he did, first belting two homers on September 29, and then the record-breaker the following day. Itís the bottom of the 8th inning here, 9/30/27, Mark Koenig on third, the game tied 2-2. The count is 1-1 as Ruth turns on a fastball from southpaw Tom Zachary and drives it deep into the right field seats. Sixty home runs! It is a single-season record that will stand until 1961 and Roger Maris.

Larsen's Perfect Pitch by Andy Jurinko
Larsen's Perfect Pitch
In 1954, as a starter for the Baltimore Orioles, Don Larsen managed to compile a 3-21 record. Who then could have imagined the perfect fall afternoon in the righthanderís future? Itís October 8, 1956 at Yankee Stadium in New York, Game 5 of the World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers, and Larsen is about to wrap up the only perfect game in post-season history. Three days earlier, Larsen had been horrible in his Game 2 start. He lasted only an inning and two-thirds, walking four and allowing four unearned runs in a game Brooklyn would win 13-8. But with the series tied 2-2 and the Yankees needing a victory before the teams returned to Brooklyn, Larsen excelled. He struck out seven and benefited from a great fifth-inning catch by centerfielder Mickey Mantle as the Yankees won 2-0. They would lose the following afternoon, before nailing down the world championship with a 9-0 victory in Game 7.
