World Series (4-3)

New York Yankees (97-57, AL) vs. Brooklyn Dodgers (94-60, NL)

The 1947 World Series matched the New York Yankees against the Brooklyn Dodgers, with the Yankees winning the Series in 7 games for their first title since 1943, and the 11th championship in team history. Yankees manager Bucky Harris won the Series for the first time since managing the Washington Senators to their only title in 1924.

Records: New York Yankees (W: 97, L: 57, Pct: .630, GA: 12) - Brooklyn Dodgers (W: 94, L: 60, Pct: .610, GA: 5)

Managers: Bucky Harris (New York), Burt Shotton (Brooklyn)

Umpires: Bill McGowan (AL), Babe Pinelli (NL), Eddie Rommel (AL), Larry Goetz (NL), Jim Boyer (AL: outfield only), George Magerkurth (NL: outfield only)

At the direction of Commissioner Happy Chandler, six umpires were used in the Series for the first time. In Series from 1918 through 1946, four umpires were used in the infield, with two alternates available for emergencies; however, no alternate had ever been needed, and Chandler believed they would be better used to make calls along the outfield lines. However, not until 1964 would the additional two umpires rotate into the infield during the course of the Series.

In Game 4, The Cookie Game, Yankee pitcher Bill Bevens was one out away from pitching a no-hitter, when Brooklyn's Cookie Lavagetto lined a base hit in the 9th inning, bringing home two runs for a miraculous 3-2 victory for the Dodgers.

Television: NBC, CBS, and DuMont
