Baseball Lore: The Cookie Game

Game 4 of the 1947 World Series has become known as The Cookie Game due to a 9th inning, game-winning hit by Cookie Lavagetto. The Yankees entered the game leading the series two games to one and looking to take one step closer to the series title. Bill Bevens, the Yankee starter, had pitched 8 and two thirds innings of a no-hitter, a feat never before accomplished in a World Series game, and his team was ahead 2-1. Bevens got Bruce Edwards to fly out, and then walked Carl Furillo. Spider Jorgensen fouled out. Al Gionfriddo pinch-ran for Furillo. Pete Reiser was pinch-batting for pitcher Hugh Casey when Gionfriddo stole second base. Reiser was then intentionally walked. This was criticized in hindsight for two reasons. One was the old axiom of never intentionally putting the winning run on base. The other is that Reiser was playing injured, and the odds of getting him out seemed reasonable. In any case, Eddie Miksis pinch-ran for Reiser. Eddie Stanky was due up, but Cookie Lavagetto was sent up to pinch-hit. On a 1-0 fastball, Lavagetto lined to right field. The ball ricocheted off of the right field barrier with a peculiar bounce and hit Yankee right fielder Tommy Henrich in the shoulder, as Gionfriddo and Miksis raced around to score. The play ended the no-hitter and won the game for the Dodgers. Hugh Thomas Casey (October 14, 1913 – July 3, 1951) born in Atlanta, Georgia was a Pitcher for the Chicago Cubs (1935), Brooklyn Dodgers (1939-42 and 1946-48), Pittsburgh Pirates (1949) and New York Yankees (1949). ...

Red Barber, the Dodgers radio announcer made the call. Prior to the play call, he commented on the fact that Stanky had broken up Ewell Blackwell's attempt at a second consecutive no-hitter, on June 22 of that season. In the background noise during that comment, the P.A. announcer can be heard saying that Miksis is running for Reiser: Walter Lanier Red Barber (February 17, 1908 - October 22, 1992) was an American sportscaster. ...

Wait a minute... Stanky is being called back from the plate and Lavagetto goes up to hit... Gionfriddo walks off second... Miksis off first... They're both ready to go on anything... Two men out, last of the ninth... the pitch... swung on, there's a drive hit out toward the right field corner. Henrich is going back. He can't get it! It's off the wall for a base hit! Here comes the tying run, and here comes the winning run!

Although the hit prevented the Dodgers from being down 3 games to 1 and may have provided a momentum swing, the Yankees went on to triumph in the series by winning the deciding seventh game. The hit proved to be the last of Cookie's career.

In the top of the sixth, the Dodgers had scored 4 runs to take an 8-5 lead. In the last of the sixth, Al Gionfriddo was sent to left field as a defensive replacement for Eddie Miksis, and Joe Hatten came in to pitch. With two on and two outs, Joe DiMaggio came to bat representing the potential tying run. The voice of broadcaster Red Barber often accompanies the film footage of this play: Albert Francis Al Gionfriddo was born on March 8, 1922 in Dysart, Pennslyvania. ... Edward Thomas Eddie Miksis played Major League Baseball. ... Joseph Hilarian Hatten (November 7, 1916 – December 16, 1988) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher. ...

Swung on, belted... it's a long one... back for it Gionfriddo... back-back-back... he-e-e... makes a one-handed catch against the bullpen! Oh, Doctor!

This may have been a re-creation, but it was done with gusto by Barber, and his "back-back-back" expression has been copied by many announcers, especially Chris Berman of ESPN. It is worth pointing out that most announcers tend to describe the ball itself as going "back-back-back", whereas in Barber's call it was the outfielder who was going "back-back-back". Christopher (Boomer) James Berman (born May 10, 1955, in Greenwich, Connecticut) is a sportscaster, who anchors SportsCenter, Monday Night Countdown, Sunday NFL Countdown, Baseball Tonight, U.S. Open golf, and other programming on ESPN. He joined ESPN a month after its founding and has been with the network since. ... ESPN, formerly an acronym for Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, is an American cable television network dedicated to broadcasting sports-related programming 24 hours a day. ...


The ball was hit so hard and deep that Gionfriddo, already playing deep, did not have time to turn around, literally having to "back-back-back"-pedal to snare the ball just in front of the bullpen-alley fence, near the 415 foot marker posted to the center field side of the bullpen alley (the sign on the left field side of the alley was posted as 402). It is also worth noting that had DiMaggio hit the ball in Ebbets Field, whose left-center area was some 50 feet closer, it might have landed in the upper deck and certainly would have been a game-tying homer. Ebbets Field was a Major League Baseball park located in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York. ...


The final segment of that clip usually shows the normally cool-and-calm DiMaggio kicking dirt around second base in frustration.


It has often been pointed out that three of the 1947 Series' prominent figures, Gionfriddo, Lavagetto and Bevens, finished their playing careers in this Series. Gionfriddo, in fact, did not play in Game 7, and his famous catch of DiMaggio's drive was his only put-out in this game. So Gionfriddo's famous catch was his final put-out in his major league career.
