Pirates/A’s Notes Part 1

July 3, 2016

One weekend baseball match up that is not a redux of a past World Series battle (the only post-season possibility as the teams involved were always in different leagues) is the Pirates and Athletics.

They have never met in a World Series despite each having entity winning teams together, within short spans of time, in two different spans in the same season more than once, in fact 4 times, the first two cited in this post, the other two tomorrow.

The earliest example is that from (1909-1914), a concentrated span of 6 seasons, the A’s then in Philadelphia, now in Oakland and in between in Kansas City where they never came close to winning a pennant, and Pittsburgh Pirates combined for 5 pennants but did not meet in the World Series.

In that span, the Athletics won 4 pennants, the Pirates only one.

A better example is (1925-1931) when the teams combined for 5 pennants, 3 by the A’s, but never clashed in the World Series.
