A Perfect Day for Yankees

Sunday afternoon offered a few hours respite from the weekend’s shocking news: Baseball’s David Cone did the improbable. He pitched the Yankees’ second perfect game in little more than a year, and he pulled it off in front of Don Larsen, who had pitched a perfect World Series game for the Yanks in 1956. Larsen was at Yankee Stadium yesterday attending Yogi Berra Day. After Larsen threw the ceremonial first pitch to Berra, Cone took over the mound and sent all 27 Montreal Expos back to the bench. The Yankees won the game 6-0. It was only the 16th perfect game in major league history.
