Unique Notes Part 2

July 31, 2016

It was/is 57 years apart that teams losing the baseball and NBA Finals the year before came back to title the next season.

Then it was the glory team, New York Yankees and Boston Celtics, now it is the Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Cavaliers.

57 years from 1958 to 2015, as cited in part 1, the greatness of Bob Pettit beat the Celtics while pitcher Lou Burdette hurled shutouts in the 5th and 7th games of the 1957 World Series and won 3 W.S. games to beat the Yankees in 1957.

Only Sandy Koufax and Burdette ever hurled shutouts in games 5 and the decisive 7th of a World Series, the Milwaukee Braves winning it all behind Burdette in 1957.
