This was the first of the Yankees' 26 World Series championships.
The Yankees opened their new Yankee Stadium in April on a home run by Babe Ruth, setting the tone for the season and this Series in which he hit three home runs along with drawing eight walks. The Giants' one bright spot was "Old Casey" Stengel, who hit game-winning homers in each of the two Giants' victories. Stengel was traded after the season leading him to quip later in life, "It's a good thing I didn't hit three homers in three games, or McGraw would have traded me to the Three-I League!". This marks the only time that three straight World Series have featured the same two teams.
