Don Larsen is one of North Idaho's bigger than life residents, not to mention being at least of foot taller than yours truly. He's a former New York Yankee pitcher and the only man in the history of the World Series to pitch a perfect game. The no-hitter Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers is one for the record books.
Don's personalized Idaho license plate reads DLOOO ... his initials and the no-hit, no-run, no-error line score from his perfect game.
It was a treat to meet him today on his 78th birthday.
