The 1991 World Series was played from October 19 to October 27 between the Minnesota Twins (95-67) of the American League and the Atlanta Braves (94-68) of the National League.
The 1991 World Series was ranked by ESPN to be the best ever played [1], with five of its games being decided by a single run, four games decided in the final at-bat and three games going into extra innings.
The 1991 World Series was notable for its series of grueling contests, five of its games being decided by two or fewer runs and three running into extra innings (the third game, a twelve-inning marathon which ended when Twins manager Tom Kelly ran out of pitchers).

In 1991 the Baseball Hall of Fame was delighted to hear about a baseball notice that is the earliest known printed reference to organized baseball in America.
Tom Heitz of the National Baseball Library in Cooperstown, New York, said in a phone interview recently that the Hall of Fame recognizes September, 1845 as the time when the rules of the game we know as baseball were first set down.
Although called baseball, most of the games were experiments with different rules and methods of play that may or may not resemble the game we know today.

 Bill Veeck
An admitted publicity hound and an imaginative innovator, he was also a sound baseball man - he created the teams in Cleveland that won pennants in 1948 and 1954 (and a world championship in 1948) and later won another pennant with the Chicago White Sox in 1959.
His mistake was to mention his idea to the all-powerful Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis, the man who at the time had almost unlimited powers in baseball.
Out of baseball, Veeck tried to buy the Ringling Brothers circus, researched the Pacific coast for major league possibilities for Phil Wrigley, publicized a passenger ship in Cleveland, worked for ABC sports and NBC game of the week, tried to buy the Tigers in 1957, and went after an NBA franchise for Cleveland.
