  World Series - MSN Encarta
The World Series is held in October and concludes the major league baseball season.
The first World Series was held in 1903, when Barney Dreyfuss, owner of the NL champion Pittsburgh Pirates, challenged Henry Killilea, owner of the AL champion Boston Americans (later renamed the Boston Red Sox), to a best-of-nine-games series.
The 1920 World Series, which matched the Cleveland Indians and the Brooklyn Dodgers (later the Los Angeles Dodgers), became memorable for one of baseball's rarest feats—the unassisted triple play.

 1962 World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 1962 World Series matched the defending champion New York Yankees against the San Francisco Giants, who had won their first NL pennant since moving from New York in 1958, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-game playoff.
This Series, which was closely matched in every game, is remembered for its then-record length of thirteen days, caused by rain in both cities, and its appropriately dramatic conclusion.
Hot hitting Jose Pagan drove in two runs with a single in the third and a home run in the 5th, but with the score tied 2-2 in the 8th, Tom Tresh walloped what proved to be the winning homer, a three-run shot that scored Bobby Richardson and Tony Kubek in front of him.

Terry, who in the seventh game of the 1960 Series yielded Bill Mazeroski's decisive, last-of-the-ninth home run and then in Game 2 of the 1961 Series suffered New York's only defeat of that fall classic, had won 23 games for the Yankees in '62 and was a complete-game winner in Game 5 of this Series.
