The program for the 1936 World Series.

The 1936 World Series matched the New York Yankees against the New York Giants, with the Yankees winning in six games to earn their fifth championship.

The Yankees played their first World Series without Babe Ruth and their first with Joe DiMaggio, Ruth having retired from the Yankees after the 1934 season.

Carl Hubbell won Game 1 but it was mostly downhill after that for the Giants. The Yankees won Game 2 at the Polo Grounds by an 18-4 count, still a Series record (as of 2006) for lopsided scoring. DiMaggio made all three ninth inning outs in that game, the final a long fly off Hank Leiber that the smooth-fielding young Yankee Clipper snared and then kept running all the way up the clubhouse steps.

DiMaggio would go on to be the only person to play on four World Championship teams in his first four years in the big leagues, the 1936-39 Yankees.

Yankees left fielder Jake Powell started the year with the Washington Senators before coming over in the middle of the year in a trade for Ben Chapman. In this Series, the unheralded Powell would lead all hitters in hits (10), batting average (.455), runs (8), bases on balls (4), add a homerun with 5 runs batted in, and grab the Yankees' only stolen base.
