Yankee Perfect Games

Don Larsen - October 8, 1956

The only perfect game in World Series history.

 

David Wells - May 17, 1998

Pat Meares lifted a fly ball to right field as David Wells looked on with unabated anticipation. He hopped up and down while the ball lazily drifted to Paul O'Neill, who was chasing it towards the right field line.  Finally, the ball plopped into O'Neill's glove and Wells could celebrate. He pumped his fist twice as a mob of Yankees swarmed him on the pitching mound while the crowd erupted into a standing ovation. The Yankees lifted Wells onto their shoulder and allowed him to bask in the limelight in eerily similar fashion to what happened to Doc Gooden in 1996. On this day -May 17, 1998 - Wells had done something only one other pitcher had done in the illustrious history of the New York Yankees: he had thrown a perfect game.  (Yankees.com)

David Cone - July 18, 1999

David Cone picked a perfect day for a perfect game.
   With Don Larsen sitting behind home plate, Cone dazzled the Montreal
Expos with a wide assortment of pitches Sunday, throwing the 16th perfect
game in major-league history to lead the Yankees to a 6-0 victory.
On the same field where Larsen pitched a perfect game against Brooklyn in
Game 5 of the 1956 World Series, Cone pitched the first no-hitter in the
three-year history of interleague play.
Cone got Orlando Cabrera to hit a foul pop to third baseman Scott Brosius
for the final out. Cone dropped to his knees and was mobbed by his
teammates, just as David Wells was last year when he pitched the only other
regular-season perfect game in Yankees' history. - (Yankees.com)
