The 1956 World Series would be the last one for Brooklyn (and last Subway Series for 44 years) and it promised to be a clash of the titans, with American League Triple Crown winner Mickey Mantle facing off against 27-game winner (and inaugural Cy Young Award winner) Don Newcombe.
The Yankees won the Series in seven games, 4 games to Brooklyn's 3, capturing their 17th championship. Brooklyn won games one and two, but New York pitchers threw five consecutive complete games (Games 3-7) to cap off the comeback. The highlight was Don Larsen's perfect game in Game 5, the only no-hitter in the history of major league post-season play.

Besides rosters, portraits, uniforms and audios, the mod provides themed menu and loading screens, stadium select screens with actual stadium photos, 1956 jukebox music, 1950's batter walkup music and correct 1950's era stadiums for every team.
