DODGERS WIN WORLD SERIES The Dodgers take the Yankees in four straight games. In the third game Junior Gilliam is brought home by Tommy Davis for the only score of the game and Don Drysdale goes on to silence the mighty Yankee bats. In the final game Frank Howard homers to put the Dodgers ahead and Mickey Mantle comes back to tie it up with another home run. Then, Gilliam reaches third on an error and is brought home with a sacrifice fly to center by Willy Davis. Then Sandy Koufax, hero of the first game, makes matchsticks out of the mighty Yankee bats. The Dodger team celebrates in the locker room.
BOB FELLER AND JACKIE ROBINSON The doors at the Baseball Halls of Fame open for two more baseball immortals - Bob Feller and Jackie Robinson. Bob Feller meets fans and pitches on the field in Cleveland. Jackie Robinson playing in Brooklyn for the Dodgers. He steals home against Yogi Bera and Whitey Ford of the Yankees in the 1955 World Series opener.
FIRST WORLD SERIES NO-HITTER In Yankee Stadium, baseball history is made in the 5th game of the World Series as Don Larsen retires 27 batters in succession--not a single Dodger reaches 1st base, as the Yankee hurler achieves the first World Series no-hitter, and the first World Series "perfect game."
WORLD SERIES:DIDGERS BEAT YANKS Behind the sterling pitching of Sal Maglie, the "come-back guy" of baseball, the Brooklyn Dodgers win the first game of the 1956 World Series 6-3. President Eisenhower tosses out the first ball, as 34,400 fans cheer the start of baseball's autumnal classic. It's a battle of home runs, with Hodges' 3-run homer the big blow of the game.
YANKS WIN 1956 WORLD SERIES With the Series tied at 3 games each, the Yanks' Johnny Kucks shuts out Brooklyn, as the New Yorkers' bats slam out four home-runs, including 2 by Berra, and a grand-slammer by Skowron. A decisive ending to a see-saw World Series, as the Yankees score 9 runs, to regain the World Championship of baseball.
DODGERS LAST GAME IN BROOKLYN In Brooklyn, a ceremony preceeds the Dodgers' last game of the season and the last ever in Ebbets Field. In the pre-game ceremonies, the National Conference of Christians and Jews honors 3 players including Sandy Koufax.
1963 WORLD SERIES OF BASEBALL The Los Angeles Dodgers (ex-Brooklyn bums) give the New York Yankees the bum's rush in the first two games of the World Series. In the first game, left hander, Sandy Koufax sets a Series mark as he strikes out 15 Yankees. With the New Yorkers' vaunted power throttled, the Dodgers go on to down the World Champions 5 to 2. The second day is almost a replay of the first. Again--it's fine Dodger pitching and they, not the Yankees, are again the power at the plate. Before it's over the Dodgers are on top, 4 to 1, and lead the Yankees two games to none as they head for the West Coast.
