World Series Information
Who won the world series in 1920?
The World Series came, of age between 1920 and 1945. In 1920, most of the baseball fans that cared about major league baseball were clustered in the northeastern sector of the United States. By the mid-1940s, millions of people across the country were listening to the World Series on the radio and American soldiers were watching the highlights on film in places like Germany and Guam. At the beginning of the era, the credibility of baseball in general, and the World Series in particular, was in doubt due to the Black Sox scandal. By the end of the period, it was so firmly entrenched as the National Pastime that it was declared an important part of the war effort by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. "If 300 teams use 5,000 or 6,000 players, these players are a definite recreational asset to at least 20,000,000 of their fellow citizens," Roosevelt wrote in a letter to Commissioner Landis, "and that in my judgment is thoroughly worthwhile." The period between the wars was the last era of successful player managers in baseball, as twelve of the fifty-two World Series teams in the period were managed by active players. On the other hand, nine were also managed by Joe McCarthy, who never played in the major leagues. We offer the best World Series Tickets online.
Although it may seem as if the New York Yankees have thoroughly dominated the last eighty years of baseball, which is not really the case. There have actually been five distinct periods of Yankee dominance, with slight lulls in between each. Each period can be identified by its most prominent manager: the Miller Huggins period (1921-28); the Joe McCarthy period (1932-43); the Casey Stengel period. (1947-64); the Billy Martin period (1976-81); and the Joe Torre period (1996-2002). Of these, the McCarthy period was arguably the most impressive. Over the eight year period from 1936-43, McCarthy's Yankees averaged 100 wins per year while posting a remarkable 25-9 record in World Series play. The strength of the team was its hitting, arguably the best in baseball history. In 1939, for example, four Yankee outfielders - Joe DiMaggio, Tommy Henrich, Charlie Kelle and George Selkirk - split the playing time equally, batting a collective 325 with 367 RBI and a remarkable .433 on-base percentage. For much of the era between the wars, the question was not which team would advance to the World Series, but which team would lose to the Yankees in the World Series.

More About the World Series:
Welcome to modern baseball, where speed merchants need not apply. The game in the late 1990s was marked by unprecedented numbers of walks, strikeouts, and home runs, all of which render speed irrelevant. The spectacular home run totals posted by Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, and others led many fans to blame a "juiced ball." In fact, the phenomenon likely had nothing to do with a juiced ball, but everything to do with juiced players. More than ever before, batters made an effort to increase their power by bulking up in the weight room. Now even wiry middle infielders like Bret Boone fancied themselves power hitters. The bulking-up craze reached a boiling point in 2002, when former MVPs Jose Canseco and Ken Caminiti revealed that an undetermined number of their colleagues had used illegal anabolic steroids as workout aids.
If the era of longballs proved anything, it is that having a prodigious slugger in your lineup is not necessary to win a championship. Between 1995 and 2000, exactly 200 batters hit more than 30 homers in a season, but none of them played on a World Series winning team. In Sosa's first eleven years with the Cubs, the team failed to win even a single postseason game. St. Louis won two division titles in McGwire's five seasons there, but failed to advance in the playoffs until 2002, their first year without him. The San Francisco Giants made it to the World Series not in 2001, when Barry Bonds hit 73 homers, but in 2002, when he hit 46.
Players may be paid obscene salaries, but they are also doing more than ever before to earn their money. With two extra rounds of playoffs and the regular season still at an all-time high of 162 games, the baseball season now lasts longer than at any time in the game's history. When the 2001 season lasted a record-breaking 217 days, Earl Weaver's old truism "this ain't football; we do this every day" became more relevant than ever before. In 1999, the Braves' Andruw Jones set a new record by playing in 176 games, including the postseason. The record was broken again in 2001, when Luis Gonzilez played in 180 contests: 162 regular season, 17 postseasons, and the All-Star Game. Fittingly, in the last game of that never ending season, Gonzalez did what only one man, Bill Mazeroski, had ever done before; get a hit in the bottom of the ninth inning to win the seventh game of the World Series.
