1981 World Series (4-2)

Los Angeles Dodgers (63-47, NL) over New York Yankees (59-48, AL)

Contents

[edit] Introduction

The 1981 World Series matched the New York Yankees against the Los Angeles Dodgers, marking their third meeting in the Series in five years. The Dodgers won the Series in six games for their first title since 1965, and their first victory over the Yankees since 1963.

Baseball was marred this summer by a two-month player's strike starting at 12:30am on June 12th finally resuming play on August 10th. In total 706 games were scrapped - over a third of the schedule. A make-shift playoff system was agreed upon by the owners, pitting the first and second half winners, leaving the team with the best overall record in the National League, the Cincinnati Reds (66-42), out of the postseason. The Los Angeles Dodgers were in first place in the National League West division when the strike began, earning a spot in the postseason. They defeated the Houston Astros, three games to two, in the NLDS then defeated the Montreal Expos, also three games to two, in the NLCS.

The New York Yankees were also in first place, in the American League East division, when the strike began. They defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, three games to two, in the ALDS, then swept the Oakland Athletics in three games in the ALCS.

[edit] The Los Angeles Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers got to the Series with help from rookie phenom, Fernando Valenzuela, whose wicked screwball won him his first 8 games including 5 by shutout. The charismatic Mexican would pitch 8 shutouts in all and win the National League Cy Young Award. Joining Valenzuela in the rotation, with fine seasons of their own, were veterans, Burt Hooton (11-6, 2.28) and Jerry Reuss (10-4, 2.30). The core of the position players remained intact with perennial All-Star Steve Garvey at first, Davey Lopes at second, Bill Russell at shortstop, and the team leader in home runs with 13, Ron Cey, at third. Budding star Pedro Guerrero had become a regular starter for the first time in his career in the outfield, where he joined veteran Dusty Baker and the tandem of Ken Landreaux and Rick Monday in centerfeidl.

Tommy Lasorda was looking for his first World Series win in his 5th full season as the Dodgers' skipper after losing to the Yankees in both 1977 and 1978.

[edit] The New York Yankees

Bob Lemon's Yankees had a losing second half (25-26) but managed to win the first half (34-22) to qualify for the playoffs. Gene Michael had ben the manager at the start of the season, but after securing a playoff spot was fired during the second half when the team was not playing to mercurial owner George Steinbrenner's liking. Dependable Ron Guidry won 11 games (against 5 losses) with Dave Righetti coming into his own as a starter winning 8 games with a 2.05 ERA. Righetti would later move to the bullpen saving over 400 games between 1984 and 1990. At this point, however, in the bullpen was Goose Gossage, who was nearly unhittable, saving 20 games with an incredible 0.77 ERA and striking out 48 in 47 innings.

Dave Winfield was signed as a free agent in the off-season joining superstar Reggie Jackson in the outfield. He led the club with 25 doubles and 68 RBIs. Winfield's huge contract, $21 million over 10 years, along with a strong lineup and terrific left-handed starting pitching, was not enough to deny the Dodgers their first World Series Championship since 1965, however, as the rest of the line-up was not as strong.

[edit] Game 3

October 23, 1981 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California
Ron Cey jump-started the Dodgers with a 1st-inning three-run homer, but rookie phenom Fernando Valenzuela was not sharp and the Yankees battled back to take a 4-3 lead after three innings. The Dodgers pushed across two runs in the 5th, the go-ahead run scoring on a double play. The Yankees threatened but Valenzuela constantly pitched out of trouble in his complete game victory. A key play came in the 7th when the Yankees had men on first and second with nobody out. But a sacrifice bunt was popped up, and Ron Cey made a diving catch and doubled the runner off first base to quell the rally.

[edit] Game 4

October 24, 1981 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California
The Yankees jumped out to a 4-0 lead, chasing starter Bob Welch in the 1st inning, but the Dodgers cut it to 4-3; the Yankees then stretched out their lead to 6-3 and turned the game over to their normally reliable bullpen. But Jay Johnstone's pinch-hit two-run homer off Ron Davis got the Dodgers back in the game. Davey Lopes then lofted a ball into right field that Reggie Jackson bumbled into a double. The flustered Davis forgot all about Lopes and went into a wind-up, enabling Lopes to easily steal third base. Lopes then tied the score when he came home on Bill Russell's single. The Dodgers got two more in the 7th off George Frazier, and held on despite Jackson's solo blast in the 8th.

[edit] Game 5

October 25, 1981 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California
In a rematch of Game 1 pitchers, Ron Guidry and Jerry Reuss were brilliant. The Yankees nursed a 1-0 lead into the 7th, with Guidry tossing a three-hit shutout. Then Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager hit back-to-back homers to almost the same spot in left-center, and Reuss went all the way on a four-hitter in the Dodger victory.

[edit] Game 6

October 28, 1981 at Yankee Stadium in New York, New York
After a travel day and a day of rain, the Yankees jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Willie Randolph's 1st-inning homer. The Dodgers tied it in the top of the 4th, and Yankee manager Bob Lemon pinch-hit for a stunned Tommy John with two men on in the bottom of the 4th inning of a 1-1 game in which John was pitching well (John had also pitched well in a Game 2 shutout victory). The move backfired as pinch-hitter Bobby Murcer flied out to the warning track to end the inning. The Yankee bullpen subsequently imploded as the Dodgers scored 7 times in the next two innings as they cruised to a 9-2 series clinching win. george Frazier was the loser for the third time, tying the unenviable record set by Lefty Williams (of Black Sox Scandal infamy) in the 1919 World Series.

[edit] Trivia

  • The series is sometimes called "The World Series that Never Was." This refers to the fact that the team with the best overall record, the Cincinnati Reds did not make the playoffs due to a modified playoff schedule established by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn due to a midseason strike. In the NL East, the St. Louis Cardinals had the best overall record, but failed to make the playoffs after finishing second in both halfs. However, it should be noted that the teams that won the first half and already were assured of a playoff spot often rested players and played a number of prospects in the 2nd half.
  • The Los Angeles Dodgers were the first National League team in World Series history to lose the first two games, then sweep their opponent during the next four contests. Ironically, the New York Yankees were the first to accomplish the feat against the Dodgers in 1978, and would do so again in their next World Series appearance, 15 years later, in 1996. Also, the 1955 Dodgers were the first to win a World Series after losing the first two games (although it took them seven games) - naturally against the Yankees. In 1956, the Yankees did the same thing to the Dodgers.
  • Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, who allegedly got into a fistfight with unknown assailants in a Los Angeles elevator during the Series, was so frustrated with star outfielder Dave Winfield's performance (having just one hit in 22 at-bats during the entire World Series), that he went on to dub Winfeld the dubious title of Mr. May. Winfield would ultimately redeem himself as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, when he knocked in the World Series clinching run in Game 6 of the 1992 World Series against the Atlanta Braves.
  • As one of the television commentators during a game played in Yankee Stadium, Howard Cosell, in a context clearly referring to the Yankees, used the term "our pitchers." He was later criticized for such a partisan statement and denied having made it. Cosell, by the way, grew up in Brooklyn, New York.
