Abstract:

There is a special excitement about the World Series. It is the climax of the long major league season, and even those people who don't follow baseball all year are captured by its drama. There have been many dramatic moments in the World Series. Each of the six World Series presented here unfolds in a different way. One underdog wins with ease -- another falls barely short. Several contests are decided in a close seventh game. Spectacular catches, clutch hits or pitching heroics may provide the winning edge. But all six Series have one thing in common -- excitement. And here, in World Series Classics, they come alive again. - Introduction.
