Recalling The 1968 World Series, Closing In On Fifty Years Later

August 3, 2018

It has been nearly 50 years since the Detroit Tigers came back from a three games to one deficit, vs the defending champion, St. Louis Cardinals to win the 1968 World Seris.

The superb Mickey Lolich was the Series star, winning three games.

Below you may click to view the last pitch of that World Series and subsequent Detroit Tigers’ on field celebration.

Broadcasting legend, Harry Caray was in his last game as anything related to the Cardinals and he calls the last plays. Additionally,  listen as Curt Gowdy, yet another we wish were still here, cite the great company Mr. Lolich joined with a (3-0) World Series record.

The list included Bob Gibson, the losing pitcher in #7/’68 W.S. who had turned the trick the year before. Mr. Gibson had an incredible 1.12 ERA for the 1968 season and I recall waiting to see the Strat-O-Matic card, for the great Cards’ pitcher.
