  1. Total Classics 1955

    Total Classics 1955
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    In the end, the 1955 baseball season belonged to the Brooklyn Dodgers.  After a heartbreaking string of near-misses that began in 1947, the Dodgers finally had their year, breezing to the pennant and nipping the Yanks in seven tough games to win it all.  It was the most balanced Dodger team in years. Roy Campanella fully recovered from the hand injury that hampered him in 1954 and once again led Brooklyn, batting .318 with 32 home runs en route to a third MVP Award.

    Duke Snider belted 42 round-trippers with a .309 average and topped the league with 136 RBI and 126 runs scored. Don Newcombe rebounded from a poor season and pitched to a masterful 20-5 record, while Clem Labine was reliable out of the bullpen with 13 wins and 11 saves.

    Sophomore skipper Walter Alston had the Dodgers flying out of the starting gate. They won their first ten -- 20 of their first 22 -- and were ahead by 12-1/2 on July 4. Eddie Mathews's 41 homers weren't enough for the Braves and Willie Mays's 51 dingers and .319 average weren't enough for the Giants as the Dodgers won the pennant by 13-1/2 games over Milwaukee and 18-1/2 over New York .

    The Yankees and Yogi Berra, who won his third MVP, took a sixth American League flag in seven years.  The Bronx Bombers, able to survive pitching problems with good years from Bob Turley and Don Larsen and with Mickey Mantle (a league-high 37 homers), held off Cleveland by 3 games with a 96-58 record. The Indians got 16 victories and a league-topping 245 strikeouts from Rookie of the Year Herb Score, but they lacked offensive punch and never really made a run for it.

    Far and away, the highlight of 1955 was the World Series. The Yankees took the first two games 6-5 and 4-2. The Dodgers came back in the next three: Campanella had three hits and three RBI, including a two-run homer, to give Brooklyn and Johnny Podres an 8-3 win in game three. Campanella, Gil Hodges, and Snider all homered in the following contest and Labine pitched the final four frames, as the Dodgers evened the Series with an 8-5 victory in game four.

    In game five, Snider hammered two more home runs and Sandy Amoros hit one, as the Dodgers won 5-3. The Yankees dominated the Dodgers in game six, winning 5-1 behind Whitey Ford's four-hitter. Podres took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth of game seven, but Billy Martin led off with a walk and then Gil McDougald bounced an infield single.

    Berra strode to the plate for the go-ahead run. He lofted a fly ball deep into the left field corner. Amoros made the catch with an outstretched arm at the last second, then got the ball back to the infield to double up McDougald. Podres completed the eight-hit shutout that, at long last, crowned the Dodgers World Champions.

  2. Total Classics 1919

    Total Classics 1919
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    With the end of World War I in 1919, both baseball and the nation as a whole returned to business as usual.  For some ballplayers during the 1919 baseball season, "business as usual" unfortunately meant plotting with gamblers to fix games.  Gambling-related scandals had been a part of baseball going back to the mid-19th century, but in 1919 the national pastime suffered the ultimate corruption: the intentional throwing of the 1919 World Series by eight members of the Chicago White Sox.
     
    In a season limited to 140 games by a baseball establishment still worried about its patriotic image, Cincinnati compiled a 96-44 record to run away with the National League pennant by 9 games over second-place New York.  The Reds had a two-prong attack.  They had Edd Roush, Heinie Groh, Jake Daubert, and little leadoff hitter Morrie Rath; and they had a staff that allowed the fewest runs in the league and included 20-game winners Slim Sallee and Hod Eller, as well as Dutch Ruether, who recorded the third-lowest ERA in the league at 1.81.
     
    In the American League race, an illusory powerhouse in Chicago had an unexpectedly difficult time shaking Cleveland and New York -- or perhaps the group later responsible for the 1919 World Series fix was dumping games for money down the stretch -- before finally finishing at 88-52, 3-1/2 up on Cleveland.  The White Sox offense was powered by the .351-hitting Joe Jackson, Eddie Collins and Happy Felsch. Their pitching staff allowed the second-fewest runs in the league thanks to 29-game winner Eddie Cicotte and 23-game winner Lefty Williams.
     
    The Reds won the crooked best-of-nine 1919 World Series five games to three.  The most dramatic moments -- seen in retrospect, as the scandal didn't break until the following year -- came in games three and six, when pitcher Dickie Kerr overcame the best efforts of his eight dishonest teammates to win 3-0 and 5-4.
     
    The best-known player in on the fix, Jackson, always maintained afterward that he was innocent. He pointed to his 1919 World Series-high .375 batting average and six RBI, although he never explained why he accepted money from the conspirators beforehand with free knowledge of their plans.

  3. Total Classics 1979

    Total Classics 1979
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    The Pittsburgh Pirates led the league in outfits during the 1979 baseball season. Their arsenal of uniforms was so vast -- black caps and yellow jerseys, yellow caps and white jerseys -- that they had 64 possible combinations at their disposal.
     
    The Pirates' lineup of players was just as varied as their line of garb.  They featured an outfielder who looked like a Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker (6' 5", 230-pound Dave Parker), and a pitcher who looked more like a placekicker (6' 4", 170-pound Kent Tekulve).  And, of course, the Pirates had Willie "Pops" Stargell, an inspiring presence at bat and in the clubhouse.  The Pirates, whose theme song was "We Are Family," won the National League East by 2 games over Montreal.
     
    The World Champion Yankees didn't even come close to repeating, as they lost two key players.  Relief ace Goose Gossage was sidelined for two months by an injury he incurred in a fight with teammate Cliff Johnson, and catcher Thurman Munson was killed in an airplane crash in August.  The Baltimore Orioles ended the Yankees' three-year divisional reign, winning 102 games. Cy Young winner Mike Flanagan (23-9) paced the pitching staff, while veteran Ken Singleton (111 RBI) spearheaded the offense.  They beat the Brewers by 8 games and the Red Sox by 11-1/2.
     
    The American League West was tight to the end, as four teams ranked within 6 games of first place.  The California Angels, starring MVP Don Baylor (139 RBI), took their first division crown.
     
    The big news in the senior circuit was Pete Rose's preseason defection to the Philadelphia Phillies.  His arrival did not promote the Phils to champs just yet, as they settled for fourth place.  The Rose-less Reds were still good enough to win the National League West.  Though the Big Red Machine was losing its hitting punch, its pitching was as strong as ever -- Tom Seaver went 16-6.
     
    Pittsburgh swept Cincinnati in the National League Championship Series, though it took two extra-inning wins to do it.  Stargell cracked two homers as the Pirates outscored the Reds 15-5.  Baltimore defeated California in four games in the American League Championship Series, which included three nail-biting finishes and a shutout.
     
    The Orioles and the Bucs battled through a seven-game 1979 World Series.  After losing the opener, Pittsburgh evened it up when Manny Sanguillen drove in Ed Ott with a ninth-inning single.  Baltimore won the next two games to go up three games to one, but the Pirates stormed back.  They won the final three games -- 7-1, 4-0, 4-1 -- to take the 1979 World Series.

  4. Total Classics 1939

    Total Classics 1939
    By Jim825, dennisjames71 & kyleb
    The 1939 baseball season marked a turning point in the history of the American League, as it lost one of its greatest players, Lou Gehrig.  Gehrig's teammates had noticed something wrong with their 35-year-old leader early in the 1938 season when the ball no longer jumped off his bat.  He had rallied to finish with only slightly sub-par numbers: a .295 batting average, 114 RBI, and 29 homers.
    Steadily deteriorating from the start of spring training in 1939 through eight games into the regular season, the "Iron Horse" finally called it quits, ending baseball's longest consecutive-game streak at 2,130.  Shortly afterward, he was diagnosed with the disease that carries his name.  
    On July 4, Lou Gehrig was given the day at Yankee Stadium at which he delivered his famous line: "Today, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth,"  He was dead by 1941.  Gehrig retired with a .340 lifetime batting average, 1,990 RBI, 493 homers -- a record 23 of them grand slams -- and a slugging average of .632, third on the all-time list behind Babe Ruth and Williams.
    A very deep Yankees team replaced Gehrig with Babe Dahlgren and returned to the business of baseball.  They were in a close pennant race with Boston, which stayed within striking distance of the lead until the All-Star break.  In late July, however, New York kicked into high gear and left the Red Sox in the dust, finally winning its fourth consecutive pennant by 17 games.
    The New York attack was led by MVP Joe DiMaggio (who won the batting title at .381 and drove in 126 runs, second-best in the American League), Red Rolfe (who scored 139 runs and hit 46 doubles, both league-leading figures), and 22-year-old outfielder Charlie Keller (who was fifth in hitting at .334).
    Cincinnati celebrated the 70th anniversary of the champion 1869 Reds, baseball's first openly professional team, and the 20th anniversary of their 1919 World Championship by winning the 1939 National League pennant.  The Reds were led by MVP pitcher Bucky Walters, who went 27-11 with a league-low 2.29 ERA.  Teammate Paul Derringer won 25, second-best in the league, and recorded the fourth-best ERA at 2.93.  The Reds pitched their way to the National League flag by 4-1/2 games over a hard-hitting St. Louis team that featured Johnny Mize, the batting champ at .349 and home run leader at 28. Ducky Medwick batted .332 and had 48 doubles (second only to teammate Enos Slaughter's 52 doubles) and 117 RBI.
    Cincinnati became the fourth National League champion in four years to run into the New York Yankees' World Series buzz saw, falling in four games by a combined score of 20-8. After losing 2-1 in a game one pitchers' duel between Derringer and Ruffing, the Reds lost by scores of 4-0, 7-3, and 7-4. The Yankees outhomered their opponents 7-0.

  5. Total Classics 1934

    Total Classics 1934
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    In the 1934 baseball season, Bill Terry's New York Giants had another good showing, scoring 760 runs, second-best in the league, and allowing only 583, the fewest of any National League staff.  Young Mel Ott hit .326 with 119 runs scored (second only to Paul Waner's 122) and drove in a league-leading 135; Ott also drew 85 walks and tied with Ripper Collins for the home run title at 35.
    It was, however, the rough and tumble St. Louis Cardinals, nicknamed the "Gashouse Gang" after the street gangs of one of Manhattan's worst neighborhoods, that won the pennant by two games in an exciting race.  New York had led for 127 straight days, when on September 28, ace Dizzy Dean defeated the Reds 4-0 to bring the Cardinals even with New York.  The next day, Dizzy's younger brother Paul won 6-1, while the Giants lost to Brooklyn.  The day after that, the elder Dean shut out Cincinnati again, 9-0, to give St. Louis a lead it never relinquished.
    Dizzy had been ridiculed for his preseason promise that the Dean brothers would win 45 games.  By season's end, they had exceeded that total by four, and the 30-7 Dizzy was voted National League MVP.  The other principal "Gashousers" were second baseman/manager Frankie Frisch, who hit .305; Collins, who batted .333 and drove in 128 runs; Leo Durocher, the league's top-fielding shortstop; Pepper Martin, the league's stolen base leader (23); and Ducky Medwick, who hit .319 with 18 triples.
    Hard-hitting Detroit batted .300 -- the only major league team to do so -- on its way to a 101-53 record, seven games better than a New York Yankees team that finished second in runs scored.  The 39-year-old Babe Ruth gave only a .288, 22-homer season performance; Lou Gehrig carried most of the weight, winning the Triple Crown with a .363 average, 165 RBI, and 49 homers.  The New York pitchers rebounded to post a league-low 3.76 team ERA courtesy of titlist Lefty Gomez (who went 26-5 with a 2.33 ERA), 19-game winner Red Ruffing, and 14-game winner Johnny Murphy.
    The Tigers lineup featured an awesome five 100-run men (including Charlie Gehringer, the league leader with 134), and four 100-RBI men (led by first baseman Hank Greenberg with 139).  MVP Mickey Cochrane hit .320 and was credited with turning around the Tiger pitching staff, which finished second in team ERA at 4.06.
    The Dean duo was the deciding factor in the close-fought, seven-game 1934 World Series. The brothers each recorded ERAs under 2.00 and won two games.
    The 1934 World Series ended on a bizarre note, when in the midst of a St. Louis rout, the Detroit crowd interrupted the game to shower left fielder Medwick with garbage to protest his sixth-inning hard slide into Tiger third baseman Marv Owen.  Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis ruled that the Cardinal outfielder leave the game for his own safety.
    The departure made no difference to the Tigers, who went on to lose by a score of 11-0.

  6. Total Classics 1971

    Total Classics 1971
    Original release by BRobby05
    Revised by Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    The 1971 baseball season was Vida Blue's year -- until October, when the veteran Baltimore Orioles showed the 21-year-old Oakland pitcher what pressure baseball was.  They themselves were then taught a lesson by the Pittsburgh Pirates, World Series winners for the first time since 1960.
    Blue's phenomenal first full season -- 24-8, 301 strikeouts, a league-leading 1.82 ERA, eight shutouts -- earned him both the American League's Cy Young and Most Valuable Player Awards. 
    Pittsburgh's speed, power, defense and pitching were too much for the National League East. Roberto Clemente led with a .341 average. His 86 RBI ranked second on the team, right behind Willie Stargell's 125.  Although no Pirate pitcher won 20 games, the hurlers were well-balanced and had an ace in the hole in Dave Giusti, whose palmball brought in five wins and a league-high 30 saves.
    In the NLCS, the Pirates overpowered the Giants, who had followed Bobby Bonds (.288 average, 33 home runs, 102 RBI) to a division title.  After losing game one to the Giants, the Pirates turned on the power. They surged to a 3-1 series victory that featured a three-homer second game by first baseman Bob Robertson and homers by Richie Hebner in games three and four.
    With Catfish Hunter's 21-11, 2.96 ERA season and the muscle of Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando, Rick Monday and Mike Epstein, Blue and the A's marched to a 101-60 record and a 16-game edge over Kansas City for the AL West title.  The Orioles won 101 games as well, on the pitching of a record-tying four 20-game winners: Dave McNally (21-5), Mike Cuellar (20-9), Pat Dobson (20-8), and Jim Palmer (20-9).  The Orioles also led the American League in runs scored for a convincing 12-game lead over second-place Detroit.
    Orioles pitching was the key to their 3-0 sweep of the A's in the ALCS. Baltimore's hitting, however, couldn't keep pace in the 1971 World Series, and Pittsburgh won in seven games behind two complete game wins by Steve Blass.  Blass was called upon after Baltimore whipped the Bucs at home 5-3 and 11-3. The Pittsburgh pitcher responded with a three-hitter and a 5-1 win.
    Baltimore scored three runs in the top of the first inning of the next game -- but it was 22 innings before the Orioles scored again, as Bruce Kison and then Nelson Briles and Bob Moose kept them in check (Briles pitched a shutout in game five).
    The Orioles came back to win game six in ten innings, but Blass slammed the door in game seven with a four-hit, 2-1 win.

  7. Total Classics 1976

    Total Classics 1976
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71
     
    During the 1976 baseball season, fireworks reigned as the United States celebrated its bicentennial and baseball's National League honored its 100th season.
    The year also marked Marvin Miller's tenth anniversary as executive director of the Players Association. After the 1975 season, Miller went to bat for pitchers Andy Messersmith and Dave McNally, who were declared "free agents" by an arbitrator. The ruling so angered the owners that they locked the players out of spring training.
    The season did begin on schedule -- thanks to the intervention of commissioner Bowie Kuhn -- but the sport of baseball had been irrevocably changed. Free agents became commonplace and baseball salaries skyrocketed.
    Mike Schmidt, the Phillies' third baseman, opened the season by slugging four of his major league-leading 38 homers in an 18-16 shootout with Chicago. Schmidt led a team loaded with recently acquired veterans, including outfielders Bobby Tolan, Jay Johnstone, and Garry Maddox; second baseman Dave Cash; and pitchers Jim Lonborg and Tug McGraw.  Philly won 101 games in 1976, finishing 9 up on Pittsburgh.
    Cincinnati continued to dominate in the West, winning 102 games. Baseball's best second baseman, Joe Morgan (.320 average, 27 home runs, 111 RBI), walked away with his second consecutive MVP trophy.
    After a two-year hiatus, the Yankees returned to a renovated Yankee Stadium and played like the Bombers of old.  With Chris Chambliss, Willie Randolph, Graig Nettles, and Thurman Munson guarding the infield; speedster Mickey Rivers patrolling in center; and Sparky Lyle leading the American League with 23 saves, the Yanks finished first in the East, 10½ up on the Orioles.
    Kansas City's 23-year-old George Brett led the American League with a .333 average, winning a disputed batting title over teammate Hal McRae by one point. Brett won the crown on the last day of the season against Minnesota; he smacked one to outfielder Steve Brye, who seemed to deliberately misplay the ball, allowing Brett to get his needed hit.  The hit didn't affect the American League West standings, though, as Kansas City finished 2½ up on the second-place A's.
    The Reds swept the Phils in the National League Championship Series in three games. The American League Championship Series, however, was a classic five-game series.  Although KC's Brett hit a sizzling .444, the spotlight was on Chambliss, New York's first baseman. Chambliss hit .524 with eight RBI, including a homer in the bottom of the ninth of game five -- a shot fans still talk about.
    The 1976 World Series, however, was a disappointment.  Billy Martin's Yankees had little left against the powerful Big Red Machine, as the Reds won in four. Bench ripped the Yankees' pitching for a .533 average, making Cincinnati the first National League team since 1922 to repeat as World Series Champions.

  9. Total Classics 1977

    Total Classics 1977
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71


    Mix an arrogant slugger, a tempestuous manager and an impatient owner, and you've got the Yankees 1977 baseball season. Prior to 1977, free agent Reggie Jackson left the Baltimore Orioles and joined the Yankee roster. During the season, Reggie fought with Yankees manager Billy Martin, who clashed with owner George Steinbrenner, who didn't get along with anyone. Yankeeland quickly became known as the "Bronx Zoo." At the start of 1977, it looked like the Yankees would breeze to the playoffs. They won 97 in 1976, and now they added Jackson, Don Gullett, Mike Torrez, and Bucky Dent -- not to mention rookie phenom Ron Guidry. But the Yanks' season wasn't easy. New York won the American League East with 100 victories, but had to weather serious challenges from Baltimore and Boston, which both finished 2-1/2 games behind. In the American League West, Kansas City won 102 games and took the division by 8 games over Texas. In the National League, the big news was the trade of Tom Seaver to Cincinnati. The 32-year-old righthander posted a 14-3 record with the Reds, 21-6 overall. The Reds finished 10 games behind the Dodgers. Steve Garvey (.297 average, 33 homers, 115 RBI), Reggie Smith (.307 average, 32 homer), Ron Cey (30 homers, 110 RBI), and Dusty Baker (.291 average, 30 homers) did the damage. The Dodgers became the only team in history to boast four players with at least 30 homers. In the National League Championship Series, Los Angeles downed Philly in four games, with Baker blasting two key homers. The American League Championship Series went down to the last inning of game five. New York burned Kansas City pitchers for three runs in the top of the ninth to win the deciding game 5-3. The 1977 World Series between Los Angeles and New York became Jackson's private stage. In the sixth and final game, Mr. October launched three homers on three successive pitches to join another Yankee, Babe Ruth, as the only other player to hit three round-trippers in one Series game. Jackson batted .450 and belted a record five homers for the Series. -------------------------------------------

  10. Total Classics 1984

    Total Classics 1984
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71


    The best teams of the 1984 baseball season had previously posed little threat of contention. The San Diego Padres, who closed the year as National League West winners, had just one winning season in their 15-year existence.

    Neither the Cubs nor Mets, who duked it out in the National League East, had challenged for the pennant in over a decade. And the Tigers, who became 1984 World Series Champions, hadn't been to the playoffs since 1972.

    The Tigers were the premier team of 1984, going 104-58. Their pitching was solid, with Jack Morris, Dan Petry, and Milt Wilcox all winning at least 17 games. Reliever Willie Hernandez won both the Cy Young and MVP Awards, posting 32 saves in his first 32 opportunities.

    The Detroit offense, powered by Kirk Gibson, Lance Parrish, Alan Trammell, and Chet Lemon, led the league in homers and runs scored. Their up-the-middle defense, with Parrish, Trammell, Lemon, and Lou Whitaker, was the best in baseball. With this attack, the Tigers opened the season 35-5, easily capturing the division.

    In the West, Kansas City edged out the Angels and Twins, despite winning only 84 games. The Royals' only standout player was Dan Quisenberry, who notched 44 saves.

    The 1984 World Series was a formality, as Detroit rolled through the Padres' starting pitching and won the 1984 World Series four games to one. To show how dominant Detroit was in 1984, check out this stat: Including the postseason, the Tigers were 100-0 when leading after eight innings.

    Total Classics 1958
    By Jim825 & dennisjames71

    In the 1950,s the Braves moved from Boston to Milwaukee, the Browns from St. Louis to Baltimore, the Athletics from Philadelphia to Kansas City, and for the 1958 baseball season -- in the most shocking moves of all -- the Dodgers and the Giants from New York to California.

    Ebbets Field was leveled (the Polo Grounds stood for several additional years), as the Dodgers made a home of Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the Giants set up shop at Seals Stadium in San Francisco. A record 78,672 attendees saw the Giants down the Dodgers on Opening Day at the Coliseum; the teams went on to pull in 167,204 supporters for the three-game series. The Dodgers drew 1,845,556 fans by year's end. Both teams would soon build new stadiums.

  12. Total Classics 1975

    Baltimore -- the unanimous preseason pick in the American League East -- won 90 games, but Boston surprised everyone by finishing 4½ games in front of the Orioles. Rookies Fred Lynn and Jim Rice sparked the Sox, as Lynn became the first player to win both the MVP and Rookie of the Year Awards in the same season. The Sox also featured established hitters like Carl Yastrzemski and Carlton Fisk, as well as pitchers Rick Wise, Luis Tiant, and Bill Lee.

    Cincinnati's Big Red Machine ran away with the National League West, boasting an All-Star lineup that included league MVP Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Tony Perez, Ken Griffey, Dave Concepcion, and George Foster.

    The Reds and the Sox swept their respective League Championship Series, setting the stage for one of the most dramatic World Series in baseball history. Cincinnati crawled out to a three-games-to-two lead, which included three one-run games. But the real fun didn't start until the sixth game in Boston.

    The two teams battled into the 12th inning of game six, when Fisk, the Sox leadoff hitter, blasted a long fly ball to left. The ball had home run distance and stayed fair, giving Fisk a home run and Boston a 7-6 come-from-behind victory.

    Game seven was almost as intense. Boston jumped to a 3-0 lead, the Reds tied it in the seventh, and Morgan won it in the ninth with a run-scoring single. Many feel the 1975 Series helped spark baseball's popularity, which soared in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s.

  13. Total Classics 1974

    Two notable personal milestones were achieved during the 1974 season. The first came on April 8, when Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves blasted his 715th career home run, breaking the all-time career home run mark of 714 set by Babe Ruth. Aaron would finish his career with 755 home runs, a record that would stand until Barry Bonds broke it in 2007.

    The second milestone came on September 10, when the St. Louis Cardinals' Lou Brock stole his 105th base off pitcher Dick Ruthven and catcher Bob Boone of the Philadelphia Phillies. This broke the single-season stolen base record of 104, set by Maury Wills in 1962. Brock would go on to steal 118 bases, a record that would stand until 1982, when Rickey Henderson swiped 130.

    The 1974 World Series matched the two-time defending champion Oakland Athletics against the Los Angeles Dodgers with the A’s winning the Series in five games.

    Rollie Fingers figured in all four Oakland victories, posting a win and three saves, and was honored as the Series MVP. Oakland became the first team to win three consecutive Series since the New York Yankees won five in a row between 1949 and 1953; the win secured the A's status as one of the truly dominant teams of the 1970s.

  14. Total Classics 1956

    Once again, the eyes of the baseball world were on the bright lights of New York City (for the fourth time in five years) as the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Yankees met on familiar ground for the coveted World Series championship. The "Bronx Bombers" had bested "the Bums" in three out of the four meetings, but it was the Dodgers who had the last laugh by winning their first title off a dominant Game 7 in '55.

    The 1956 World Series would be the last one for Brooklyn (and last Subway Series for 44 years) and it promised to be a clash of the titans, with American League Triple Crown winner Mickey Mantle facing off against 27-game winner (and inaugural Cy Young Award winner) Don Newcombe.

    The Yankees won the Series in seven games, 4 games to Brooklyn's 3, capturing their 17th championship. Brooklyn won games one and two, but New York pitchers threw five consecutive complete games (Games 3-7) to cap off the comeback. The highlight was Don Larsen's perfect game in Game 5, the only no-hitter in the history of major league post-season play.

  15. Total Classics 1951

    On August 11, 1951, the New York Giants were 13 games behind the Brooklyn Dodgers in the National League. For all intent and purposes, the National League race was over. Someone forgot to tell that to the Giants, however. On August 12, the Giants kicked off a 16-game winning streak. Led by 20-year old Rookie of the Year Willie Mays and Sal Maglie (2.93 ERA and a league-leading 23 wins), New York won 39 of its last 47 (including the final seven) to pull into a first-place tie with the Dodgers.

    A split of the first two playoff contests set up a dramatic deciding game at the Polo Grounds on October 3. The Dodgers took a 4-1 lead into the bottom of the ninth. With Don Newcombe cruising along, three outs did not seem to be a tall order. Al Dark and Don Mueller then opened the inning with singles. After the heavy-hitting Monte Irvin popped out, Whitey Lockman ripped a double to left, scoring Dark and sending Mueller to third and Newcombe to the showers.

    Owning a 4-2 lead with the tying run in scoring position, Dodger skipper Chuck Dressen called for the right-hander Ralph Branca. Bobby Thomson stepped up to bat and on the second pitch, lined a game-winning, three-run homer to left - the "Shot Heard 'Round the World" -- giving the Giants the pennant and forever linking himself with Branca as baseball's classic hero-and-goat duo.

  16. Total Classics 1978

    The 1978 season featured a constant battle for first place in the AL East between the Red Sox and Yankees. On July 19, 1978, the Yankees were in 4th place, 14 games behind the Red Sox.

    On October 1, 1978, the final day of the regular season, the Red Sox won and the Yankees lost, making them tied for first place with identical 99-63 records.

    On October 2, 1978, the two clubs met in a one game playoff. Cy Young Award winner Ron Guidry notched his 25th victory of the season and Bucky Dent secured his place in Yankees history by hitting a 3-run home run over the Green Monster.

  17. Total Classics 1941

    Total Classics 1941 By Jim825 & dennisjames71   Special thanks Yankee4Life who provided music and images for the mod.   During the 1941 baseball season, the New York Yankees won the 1941 pennant by 17 games over Boston, but the pennant race was overshadowed by the personal heroics of two superstars. New York's American League MVP Joe DiMaggio put together a record 56-game hitting streak, and Boston's Ted Williams batted .406.   In the summer of 1941, Joe DiMaggio hit safely in a record 56 consecutive games.  DiMaggio, who had shown a predilection for hitting streaks since his minor league days, started his 1941 streak with a hit against the White Sox on May 15.  On July 2, a DiMaggio homer broke Wee Willie Keeler's 44-year-old major league hitting-streak record of 44.  And on July 17, his streak was ended at 56 by two terrific back-handed stops by Indians third baseman Ken Keltner.   DiMaggio finished the season third in the American League in batting at .357, first in RBI with 125, second in doubles with 43, and fourth in home runs.  But his season was dwarfed -- statistically, at least -- by that of Williams, who led him in runs 135 to 122, homers 37 to 30, on-base average .551 to .440, and slugging average .735 to .643.  Williams also batted .406, the highest batting average in either league since Rogers Hornsby's .424 in 1924.   At one point in June, Williams was hitting .436 but then began to fade.  On the final day of the season, he found himself at .3995 -- technically .400 by baseball scoring rules.  Nevertheless, Williams refused to play it safe and played both ends of a doubleheader.  He went 6-for-8 to finish the season with a .406 average.   -------------------------------------------   The Total Classics 1941 mod brings you the sights and sounds of the 1941 baseball season. Besides rosters, portraits, uniforms and audios, the mod provides themed menu and loading screens, stadium select screens with actual stadium photos, 1940's jukebox music, 1941 batter walkup music, an accurate 1941 schedule and correct 1940's era stadiums for every team.  The mod also includes OTBJoel's great Legends from the Booth audio.   -------------------------------------------   *** INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS ***   - After you download the total_classics_1941.7z file, double-click to open it.   - Extract the contents of the file into a folder.   - Double-click the explodeme.exe file   - Find the location of a CLEAN (or patched) copy of MVP Baseball 2005 and click "Extract".   - Allow the program to extract all of the new content.   - Play the new Total Classics 1941 mod.   -------------------------------------------   *** VERSION HISTORY ***   v1.0   Initial release

  18. Negro League Dynasty Fix

    In v1.0 and v2.0 of the Negro League Baseball Mod, there is an issue in Dynasty mode where some Negro League teas do not show up in the league standings and some non-Negro League teams do show up.

    This mod replaces a single file (team.dat) in the rosters. It also restores one audio file (hsfxhdr.big) that removes the fireworks and siren sounds after a homerun is hit. It was mistakenly left out of v2 of the Negro League mod.

    This mod should ONLY be installed if you have already installed v1.0 or v2.0 of the Negro League Baseball Mod. The files in this mod will be included in the next release of the Negro League Baseball Mod, but I decided to release this as a separate mod rather than making people have to download the entire Negro League Baseball Mod just to get two new files.

  19. Total Classics 1946

    The 1946 World Series was the first one played with rosters not depleted by the War since 1941. It featured the St. Louis Cardinals, taking part in their fourth World Series in five years, against the Boston Red Sox, who were making their first World Series appearance since Babe Ruth was a young left-handed pitcher in 1918. The Series would turn out to be a classic, seven-game, see-saw affair, with one play in particular, Enos Slaughter's "Mad Dash."

    In the eighth inning of Game 7, with the score 3–3, the Cardinals' Enos Slaughter opened the inning with a single but two batters failed to advance him. With two outs, Harry Walker walloped a hit over Johnny Pesky's head into left-center field. As Leon Culberson chased it down, Slaughter started his dash. Pesky caught Culberson's throw, turned and perhaps surprised to see Slaughter headed for the plate, hesitated just a split second before throwing home.

    Roy Partee had to take a few steps up the third base line to catch Pesky's toss, but Slaughter was safe without a play at the plate and Walker was credited with an RBI double. The Cardinals won the game and the Series in seven games, giving them their sixth championship. The Red Sox, meanwhile, saw their title drought extended and they had to wait until 1967 for another World Series appearance,
