1959 World Series (4-2)

Los Angeles Dodgers (88-68, NL) over Chicago White Sox (94-60, AL)


Introduction[edit]

In the 1959 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago White Sox, 4 games to 2, to win their first world championship since moving from Brooklyn in 1958­, and only the second in team history. It was the first World Series to feature games on the West Coast, and the first without a team from New York City since 1948. The White Sox were returning to the Fall Classic for the first time since their ignominous loss i the Black Sox Scandal-tainted 1919 World Series.

Chuck Essegian hit two pinch hit home runs in the World Series. It still stands as a World Series record. It was tied in 1975 by Bernie Carbo of the Boston Red Sox.
