David Cone Perfect Game Box Score

David Cone was simply perfect on a day when perfection was in attendance. The original battery of the 1956 World Series perfect game were on hand as it was Yogi Berra Day in Yankee Stadium. Batterymate Don Larsen was on hand to throw out the first pitch of the game and Cone provided the fireworks for Berra, Larsen, and Yankees fans.

"You probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than this happening, but what an honor." - David Cone
