1977 Yankees won
1970 Orioles won
1964 Yankees lost
1961 Yankees won
1958 Yankees won
1956 Yankees won
1953 Dodgers lost
1944 Cardinals won
1943 Yankees won
1937 Giants lost
1931 Cardinals won
1927 Yankees won
1924 Giants lost
1923 Yankees won
1922 Yankees lost
1913 Giants lost

Tunnel vision looking for last American League winner.
