Even today, this is the subject of myth and of admiration. Sports Illustrated ran this article on Koufax’s decision to mark the 50th anniversary of the event.
Feel free to discuss the last weeks of the baseball season, the first two strange weeks of the football season, the NBA’s mild punishment of Mark Cuban, or anything else in the world of sports.
