Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Donald Eugene Liddle (May 25, 1925 - June 5, 2000) was an American left-handed pitcher in professional baseball who played four seasons in the Major Leagues for the Milwaukee Braves, New York Giants and St. Louis Cardinals from 1953 through 1956. Born in Mount Carmel, Illinois, he batted left-handed, stood 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) tall and weighed 165 pounds (75 kg). Liddle is most remembered as the pitcher who, in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series, threw the pitch to Vic Wertz that resulted in The Catch - Giant centerfielder Willie Mays' historic back-to-home-plate, over-the-shoulder grab of Wertz' line drive with two men on base in the deepest part of centerfield at the Giants' home field, the Polo Grounds.show more
