It’s that time of the year again. October brings to mind all the ghosts of baseball’s past; from Babe Ruth to Fred Snodgrass and all in between, to the side and over and under. But October has a special place in the hearts of baseball fans. October is the month of crowning champions and the question I pose is what was the greatest World Series ever played?
The World Series of 1960 comes to mind, with names like Mazeroski and Mantle and Haddix and Ford. Maz ended the Series with a climactic long ball to make the Pirates champs–you can’t get much more exciting than that. But how can you overlook the 1905 World Series when Christy Mathewson threw three complete game shutouts? How about the 1993 World Series when Joe Carter belted a Mitch Williams offering, making the Blue Jays champs?
As a Kansas Royals fan, the 1985 World Series holds a special place in my heart. The Royals were down three games to one but took the final three to beat the Cardinals. The 1991 World Series–that ended with the famous dogfight between the Twins and Braves–was a classic. And no one can forget the infamous 1919 World Series when the White Sox folded for the Reds.
Leave a post here and tell us all your favorite World Series or your favorite World Series moment. Mention Don Larsen’s perfect game or Jorge Orta’s play at first that Don Denkinger fumbled. It’s your memeories–so let’ share ’em.
