New York Yankees legend Don Larsen said Thursday he wants to pay for his grandkids' college education by auctioning off a prized possession -- the uniform he wore when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.

People from around the world will be invited to make bids online or via phone this fall with Steiner Sports Memorabilia.

Steiner Executive Vice President Brett Schissler estimates the uniform will sell for up to $2 million.

Larsen is now 82. He pitched the perfect game in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Qualls asks for trade

Philadelphia Phillies reliever Chad Qualls asked to be traded after the team informed him he was being designated for assignment.

Qualls, 33, signed a one-year, $1.15-million deal at the end of January and was being counted upon as a late-inning reliever.
