    Yankees. There was that Perfect Game thing in the World Series that year. You may have heard something about it.

    That goes without saying. Or, in this case, I guess not.

    The Yanks with Joe D. And Bill Dickey leading The way to a four game sweep of the Reds. Sadly, Lou Gehrig had to retire because of illness.

    Yankees won the Series in seven over the Brooklyn Dodgers. Baseball as it should be.

    Yankees won the ALE but lost the pennant to KC before they lost in the WS to PHI.

    The Oakland As won the pennant. They went on to defeat the Cincinnati Reds in 7 games (1972).

    Depends on your criteria...I was born in between seasons, so it’s either Kansas City (year I was born) or Boston (first season of my lifetime)

    Edit —> sorry for bumping an old thread. Whoops! just rediscovering this sub forum for the first time in many years.

    Well at least they didn't win the Series. Although I actually rooted for them in that Series and even dug into my piggy bank to bet 2 USD on them, which of course I lost.

    Unfortunately in my case it was the Sox sweeping the 3 time WS champion Oakland beast of a team.

    I hated that World Series. That was the first World Series where I was passionately rooting for both teams to lose.

    I grew up hating the Orioles. The Red Sox didn't start to annoy me overly until shortly after that Series. Probably started with the bench-clearing brawl in 1976 and of course took off with the pennant races in 1977 and 1978.

    I never really hated the O's, though I suppose I should have. I was in awe of them.
