Both 1968 MVPs, the Tigers' Denny McLain and the Cardinals' Bob Gibson, pitch in the Series in "The Year of the Pitcher", but Lolich steals the show by becoming the last pitcher, as of the 2004 season, to win three complete games in a single World Series.

 St. James Encyclopedia of Pop Culture: George Steinbrenner
Steinbrenner's tempestuous relationship with his managers began with the resignation of longtime manager Ralph Houk after the 1973 season.
Considered to have been the driving force behind baseball's escalating salary structure in the late 1970s and 1980s, Steinbrenner was loathed for his frequent criticism of his players and managers while being credited with bringing winning baseball back to New York City.
Steinbrenner's years with the Yankees reached an all-time low in 1990&; when after a decade of steady decline the team finished in last place for the first time since 1966.

But a shred of genuine news emerged: Major League Baseball officials said it would investigate the incident to determine whether Clemens should be disciplined.

Baseball is certainly more competitive today than it was in the dynasty decades of the New York Yankees.
In 1995, each league was further divided into three divisions, creating six pennant races, and post-season play was expanded to involve eight clubs, as two "wild card" teams joined the pennant winners in the playoffs.
In 1973, the American League added the designated hitter, a player who bats in place of the pitcher but does not play in the field.
