More Baseball Notes

February 22, 2019

The Oakland Athletics franchise is tied with the Boston Red Sox for third place in World Series victories with nine. The Yankees lead with 27, the Cardinals are second with eleven crowns, the last won in 2011.

Five were attained in a pair of great sustained baseball performances by Connie Mack managed teams when the franchise was located in Philadelphia. The next four were won by the Oakland A’s, two under Dick Williams and one apiece managed by Alvin Dark and Tony LaRussa.

Today a redux of the 2008 World Series as the Philadelphia Phillies who won that W.S. in 5 games face the Tampa Rays. Click below to view the Phils’ clinching moment with the great and I mean great, broadcaster, Harry Kalas calling the last out.
