The Shea Stadium fans, frenetic but orderly for a change, were on their feet crying for the final blow, and the mounted police were preparing a charge from the bullpen to barricade the field.

Despite the Yankees' downfall, Richardson was voted the Series MVP with a performance that included a.367 average, eight runs scored, and 12 runs batted in.
The 1963 World Series (a four-game sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers) was perhaps the only Fall Classic of the period where Richardson didn't make a marked contribution with either his glove or bat.

 The Sporting News: Baseball History of the World Series
While Gibson had won 19, 20 and 21 games in the previous three years and was bound for even greater success in the next three seasons, 1967 was in many ways most representative of the man's will to win and his ability to turn that determination into success.
Forced to settle for 13 regular-season victories for the surprising Cardinals, who raced to a 10 1/2-game victory margin in the National League race, Gibson was ready to shoulder the load in the World Series against an even more upstart aggregation: The Boston Red Sox.
Gibson was 2-0 thus far in the Series, having allowed only one run and 11 hits in 18 innings; Lonborg also was 2-0, having given up one run and a mere four hits in 18 innings.

We have seemingly spent an entire summer drawing comparisons to 1961 as Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa chased, caught and passed the major league record of 61 home runs set by Roger Maris in 1961.
But the World Series of '61 is all but forgotten because the favored Yankees breezed past the Cincinnati Reds, four games to one.
If the Yankees win the World Series next week, it will probably be forgotten, just like the 1961 Series, in becoming only a footnote to perhaps the most remarkable baseball season ever.

Also significant is that the Yankees won five consecutive AL pennants beginning in 1960 (1960-1964) and two World Series titles (1961-1962) with Boyer guarding the hot corner.
It was Ralph Houk, as his manager in 1961 (having succeeded Casey Stengel), who gave back to Clete some of the pride and confidence that had been taken away by Stengel in the 1960 World Series.
In the 1964 World Series, the Boyer brothers, Clete and Ken (for the St. Louis Cards), appeared on a major league field together for the first time, each playing third base for their team.

Boston evened the Series, though, when Bill Dinneen threw a three-hitter and Patsy Dougherty walloped two homers in a 3-0 triumph.
The 3-0 decision was the Red Sox's fourth straight triumph and made the upstart Boston team champion of the First American league-vs. National League World Series.
Perhaps the main thing about the 1903 Series, though, was that it at least cooled tempers between baseball's warring factions.
