 World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, the World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball in the United States and Canada, played in October after the end of the regular season between the pennant winner of the American League and the pennant winner of the National League.
The Series winner is determined through a best-of-seven playoff (except in 1903, 1919, 1920 and 1921 when the winner was determined through a best-of-nine playoff) and is awarded the World Series Trophy, as well as World Series rings.
These series' were arranged by the individual teams, not by the leagues directly, the same as the 1880s World's Series matches had been, and which had often proved troublesome.

Losing out on a rare chance to national baseball broadcasts might have been a disaster back in the past, but let’s not forget that today’s kids are barraged with chances to buy into baseball over the proceeding seven months, not to mention nearly inescapable World Series highlights, reruns, and recaps.
Over the course of the preceding few years, the game had lost some of its popularity to football, a more fast-paced and violent sport, one whose action was packed into a more concentrated space, which made it easier to both broadcast—and watch—on television.
Later drafted by the expansion Kansas City Royals, Kelly played for the franchise’s inaugural team in 1969.

 Baseball Toaster : Mike's Baseball Rants
For those of you how are two young to remember, Hoyt won 24 games for the White Sox back in 1983, when they had a cartoon batter logo on the front of their uniforms and Harold Baines was the mayor of Chicago.
Any list headed by Sterling Hitchcock has got to be wacky.
There are some great pitchers who "took it to the next level" in the postseason and some marginal pitchers, like Backe, who did the same, though their "next level" was competence.

Major League Baseball's official rules simply state that fields built after 1958 must have a minimum distance of 325 feet from home plate to the fences in left and right field and 400 feet to center.
Finally, it is the only park in major league baseball with a flagpole in play, a feature borrowed from the old Tiger Stadium in Detroit.

While the Mets earned their half of the twin billing in baseball's 1973 extravaganza by proving the best of the worst in the National League's Eastern Division, Finley arrived on the balanced strength of the A's, who proved the class of the American League West.
Whatever chance Chicago might have had was lost when Dick Allen, the highest paid player in baseball, broke his leg in mid-season and was sidelined for the year.
Andrews was restored to the active roster for the next game on orders of Commissioner Kuhn and he received a standing ovation, even from Finley, when he came out of the dugout to pinch hit.

 Yankee dugout change - Baseball Fever
If I am not mistaken, I believe they used the third-base-side dugout at the old Stadium until it closed after the 1973 season, and then they began using the first-base-side dugout when playing in Shea Stadium in 1974 and 1975.
Thanks for trying to give me an answer to the question of what year did the Yankees switch dugouts from the third base side to the first base side but unfortunately neither answer was right.
I think that the Yankees have been in the first-base-side dugout at Yankee Stadium since it re-opened in 1976.

Future hall of famers in the 1973 World Series were Catfish Hunter (1-0), Rollie Fingers (0-1), Tom Seaver (0-1), Willie Mays (.286), and Reggie Jackson (.310).

 Baseball Prospectus Statistics
Hitters in the AL since 1973 have a disadvantage in these statistics, since the league average is artificially inflated by the use of the DH and no adjustment is made for that.
A pitcher who has faced batters with an average OPS of.750, for example, has had an easier time than a pitcher facing batters with an average OPS of.800.
Statistics that have been adjusted for a single season are the best stats to use when you are only interested in that one season.
