The excitement surrounding the opening of the New York World’s Fair helps to place the baseball season in perspective, especially since Tofel notes that the three New York teams wore a patch on their sleeve celebrating the Fair.
The Yankees end the season with the pennant, and went to the World Series with great confidence—no player on the Yankee roster had played for a team that lost a World Series.
Through the 1930’s at least, people considered the 1927 Yankees the best team in baseball.

 Ben Chapman (baseball player) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Although he made his name as a fast, ferocious and hard-nosed player with the New York Yankees and four other American League teams from 1930-41, that reputation was eclipsed by the controversial role he played in 1947, as manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, opposing the presence of Jackie Robinson on a big league team.
Chapman, who batted and threw righthanded, was a teammate of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey and other Hall of Famers on the Yankees from 1930 through the middle of 1936.
The team improved somewhat through the end of 1945, and climbed to fifth place in 1946, the first year of the postwar baseball boom and the last season in which the color line was in force.

 Satchel Paige's Corrected 1948 Stats
Then I discovered that in the August 8 game hosting the New York Yankees, Satchel pitched against a man named Joe Page.
I have seen many accounts of "Satchell Page" in my readings of 1930's newspapers, so it comes as no surprise that somebody would make that mistake.
The article confirms what I had gleaned from a less detailed New York Times report, that it was Page who should be credited with the walks and strikeouts, not Paige.

 Kiki
Cuyler spent the remainder of the season on the bench, and in spite of the team’s internal turmoil, the Pirates went into the 1927 World Series against the New York Yankees led by Ruth, Gehrig, and Lazzeri who today the are considered one of the best teams in baseball history.
The name of Kiki Cuyler was familiar, perhaps because of his unusual alliterative appellation, but as a longtime resident of Michigan I never knew that the Hall of Famer came from my home state until I read Dave D’Anonia’s engrossing book Invincible Summer.
If you are not acquainted with one of the great players of the 1920’s and 1930’s, an era that had many potent hitters, here is Kiki Cuyler who could be the most overlooked member of the Hall of Fame.
