"The White Sox fans don't want the Cubs' fans, but I was pulling for them all season – except for the games against the Minnesota Twins (where Johnny played on the 1965 World Series team, in a loss against many of his old Dodgers' teammates)," said Mary Ann, who was pulling for the Cardinals.
The Dodgers reached the championship by defeating the Milwaukee Braves in a best-of-three playoff series – 3-2 in Milwaukee and 6-5 at home in the coliseum.

The 1959 World Series between the Dodgers and the American League champion Chicago White Sox began at Comiskey Park, which hadn't played host to a Series game since the concluding game of the scandal-ridden 1919 affair.

In their last Series game three years earlier, the Dodgers had lost, 9-0, and they now had scored one run in their last four Series contests.
