Don Liddle - BR Bullpen (869 words)
Don Liddle (pronounced LID-ul) was a pitcher 12 years (1946-1957), four in the Majors (1953-1956) and eight in the minors (1946-1952 and 1957).
Liddle was 27 years old when he broke into the big leagues on April 17, 1953, with the Milwaukee Braves.
Liddle was also on the mound in Game One of the Series in the Polo Grounds when Willie Mays made his famous over-the-shoulder catch, running down a 460-foot fly ball hit by Vic Wertz of Cleveland.
The Catch - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (347 words)
So, with runners on first and second, Giants manager Leo Durocher summoned lefty relief pitcher Don Liddle to replace Maglie and pitch to Cleveland's Vic Wertz, also a left-hander.
The throw nearly caught Doby, who had been running in the belief that the ball would not be caught, before he returned safely to second base.
The play prevented the Indians from taking the lead and in the bottom of the 10th, the Giants won the game on their way to sweeping the Series.
