Most Exciting Baseball World Series

  • Dec 1, 2009
  • by
As I first started following baseball in 1968, these are the most exciting World Series that I have witnessed in my baseball lifetime.
1
1975 World Series
Luis Tiant finally gets a chance to shine on the big stage and doesn't disappoint. Carlton Fisk's body language to keep that ball fair and force game seven. After 1970 and 1972 the Big Red Machine cannot be denied again. Messrs Morgan, Rose, Perez finally win it all!
2
2001 World Series
Three of the most exciting comback wins. The Yankee magic finally ends as Mariano Rivera makes a key error in the ninth inning of game seven to blow the save. So instead of another piece of hardware in the Yankee Trophy case, The Diamondbacks with Shilling and Johnson are the ones to celebrate.
3
2002 World Series
Came close to being a tragic World Series as Dusty Baker's son is rescued from a collision at home plate. The Angels stage a miracle comeback in Game 7 in a series loaded with homerun punch and the first post season that Barry Bonds shines.
4
1986 World Series
Depending on how you look at it, Game 6 was either the most exciting comeback win or the most painful loss in a World Series game ever. Poor Bill Buckner played gallently and was unjustly labeled for losing this series (game 6 was tied when that ball was hit and the Red Sox blew a 3-0 game seven lead).
5
1968 World Series
Bob Gibson at his finest in a battle of two of the greatest line-ups ever. Mickey Lolich outshines 31 game winner Denny McClain.
6
1991 World Series
Games six with Kirby Puckett's walk-off homerun and Game seven's Morris vs. Smoltz ten inning duel make this series classic.

What did you think of this list?
