FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 17, 1953: In a 10-inning 6–5 win over the visiting Browns, the Yanks and Browns use 41 players to set a new ML record. New York uses 23. The 3 hr. 33 minute game necessitates the nite game being called after three 1/2 scoreless innings. The Browns jump on Whitey Ford, threatening to hand the lefty his first defeat ever as a starter, but three relievers bail him out. Don Larsen goes nine 1/3 for the Browns, with Mike Blyzka losing.
