1905 World Series Program


The 1905 World Series matched the New York Giants against the Philadelphia Athletics, with the Giants winning 4 games to 1. Four of the five games featured duels between future Hall of Fame pitchers, with the likes of Christy Mathewson, Eddie Plank, Joe McGinnity, and Chief Bender. This Match up also featured Hall of Fame managers John McGraw of the New York Giants and Connie Mack of the Philadelphia Athletics.

There wasn't a lot of offense is this World Series as each of the five games was a shutout. Three of those, over a six-day span, were pitched and won by Christy Mathewson, a 25-year-old Giants hurler who established himself as a first-magnitude star in doing so, not to mentioned all of his 3 wins were shutouts.
