Even though the great Joe DiMaggio announced his retirement at the conclusion of the previous campaign, the Yankees captured their fourth consecutive American League pennant in 1952, finishing the season with a record of 95-59, just two games ahead of the second-place Cleveland Indians. Mickey Mantle helped to pick up some of the slack in DiMaggio's absence, finishing his second major league season with 23 home runs, 87 runs batted in, 94 runs scored, and a .311 batting average, en route to earning a third-place finish in the A.L. MVP voting. Teammate Yogi Berra placed fourth in the balloting, ending the year with a team-leading 30 home runs, 98 runs batted in, and 97 runs scored. 1952 WORLD SERIES 11:24AM 04/24/12
