Baseball Notes/A Look Back

August 3, 2019

In the 1973 NLCS, the (82 wins, 79 losses) New York Mets defeated the Cincinnati Reds, three games to 2, to win the National League Pennant.

The Mets were managed by Yogi Berra, who played on a baseball record 10 title teams, all with the New York Yankees.

In the subsequent World Series, the Oakland A’s won their second straight baseball crown, winning in 7 games vs the Mets.

As a manager, the one and only Yogi, took two teams to a decisive World Series game 7, (the ’64 Yankees lost to the great pitcher, Bob Gibson, and the St. Louis Cardinals), his teams losing both.
