The Phillies were in the World’s Series against the team that over the years had established that the champion of baseball must go through New York, and more to the point, through the New York Yankees. In the 18 years from 1947 to 1964, the Yankees played in 15 World’s Series, winning 10. What chance did the worn-out Phillies have against the lordly Yankees? Well, none. The Yankees won all four games, though it must be said, the Phillies battled, losing the first three games by one-run margins which, dating back to 1915, meant that the fighting Phillies had lost seven straight World’s Series games all by that slim, one-run edge. The baseball gods were toying with the city of Philadelphia and its desperately striving baseball fanatics.
