World Series Remember When: Sandy Koufax's Game 7 shutout

It was Game 7 against the Twins, and Koufax threw a complete-game shutout, allowing only three hits while walking three and striking out 10.
Here are some highlights:
Also, the great Vin Scully -- who will be doing NLCS Game 3 Monday night on the radio for the Dodgers -- interviewed Koufax after the game. Here it is:
