St. Louis/Toronto Title(s) Notes

June 21, 2019

In winning their first franchise title, and its city’s fourteenth, the St. Louis Blues and Toronto Raptors, respectively denied the Boston Bruins and Golden State Warriors, in their bids for a seventh crown.

Of course, both the Blues and Raptors were underdogs in both the final round and the semi-final round.

There are other links between the teams and cities that won the 20th hockey and basketball league titles of this century, at least beginning with the year 2000.

It is the fourth time the cities of St. Louis and Toronto have won major North American sports league crowns in the same year.

One of those years was 1942 (1964, 1967 and 2019 are the others).

The previous three “same year Toronto/St. Louis titles,” involved the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs and the baseball St. Louis Cardinals.

Tomorrow a look at the 1942 titles for the Leafs and Cards.
