Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harry Arthur "Cookie" Lavagetto (December 1, 1912 - August 10, 1990) was a third baseman, manager and coach in American Major League Baseball. He is most widely known as the pinch hitter whose double ruined Bill Bevens' no-hitter in Game 4 of the 1947 World Series and gave his Brooklyn Dodgers a breathtaking victory over the New York Yankees, a game known as The Cookie Game. On October 3, 1947 at Ebbets Field, Bevens was ahead 2-1 going into the bottom of the ninth inning with two outs. He had surrendered no hits - an unprecedented World Series achievement at the time - but two runners were on base from Bevens' ninth and tenth base on balls of the game.show more
