Best Answer

Two facts emerged in the 1956 Perfect Game World Series Yankee victory against the cross town rivals, Brooklyn Dodgers.

The first fact was clearly seen. Yankee pitcher Don Larson pitcher the game from the stretch position rather than from a full wind up one.

The second unusual item was a comment made by Yankee superstar Mickey Mantle. In one of his autobiographies, he goes out of his way to mention that his fellow teammate, Don Larsen, had been "drinking alcohol" prior to the Game.

Even though many years had passed since the World Series, it seems rather unusual for Mantle to have made such a remark in writing.

Can a pregnant woman play baseball?

Considering the fact how few women play baseball, and none at all on anything resembling a professional sport- this is an unusual question. My guess the hazards of being hit by a pitched or batted ball would be overwhelming against any ball-playing of this type. It would be drastically unfair, fans would notice.
