1937 World Series (4-1)

New York Yankees (102-52, AL) vs. New York Giants (95-57, NL)


The 1937 World Series featured the defending champion New York Yankees and the New York Giants in a rematch of the 1936 Series. The Yankees won the Series in five games for their second championship in a row and their sixth in 15 years. It also broke a tie that they had reached in 1936, with the Philadelphia Athletics and Boston Red Sox for most championships (they each had five). By the time either of those teams won their next Series, the Yankees had far outdistanced them, with 20 wins as of 1972, and 26 wins as of 2004, respectively.

This was the Yankees' third Series win over the Giants, finally giving the Yankees an overall edge at that point of 3 Series to 2 over the Giants, after having lost their first two meetings in 1921 and 1922. Since then, the only one of the "classic eight" members of the National League to eventually hold a winning edge over the Yankees is the St. Louis Cardinals.

This would be Lou Gehrig's last really good season before amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) began to take its toll on his career.

Game 4 featured the final World Series innings ever pitched by Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell who, during the 9th inning, threw a pitch that Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig hit for his final World Series home run.

The 1937 Series was the first in which a team (Yankees) did not commit any errors.
