More From The ’68 W.S.

August 4, 2018

Today, I will share a longer video and some more notes on the 1968 World Series, particularly game 7.

Detroit’s Mickey Lolich had won games 2 and 5 while the defending champion Cardinals of “St. Loo,” had won #’s 1 and 4 behind Bob Gibson, with 31 game winner Dennis McLain (the only pitcher to win as many as 30 since the immortal “Dizzy” Dean did so in 1934), losing both vs Gibson.

However, McLain was victorious in game 6 with Jim Northrup hitting a grand slam home run to aid the Tigers’ cause.

Mr. Northrup also delivered the big hit of #7, thus almost by definition, the series, a 2 run triple, that broke a scoreless tie in the top of the seventh inning.
