On this day, 51 years ago, OUR great relief pitcher CLEM LABINE, came out of the bullpen to pitch a gem in the 1956 World Series.
He pitched a BRILLIANT 1-0 victory over the pinstripers in 10 innings. OUR JACKIE provided the hit that scored the only run of that game. That 41/42 punch gave US one more thrill to remember.
I cannot tell you what a thrill it was to sit in OUR Ebbets Field and watch CLEM's incredible performance. I LOVED IT!
The next day, the NY Journal American's red banner headline read:
Turley Spun Aspirin all day, but CLEM Give 'Em More Relief
How many of you remember this game?
