1950 World Series

Plaque
1950 World Series Program


The Phillies, a particularly young team which came to be known as the "Whiz Kids", had won the National League pennant in dramatic fashion on the final day of the season to garner their second pennant - their first in 35 years. Their Cinderella story would end there as the Yankees swept the series in four games for their second consecutive championship, and their thirteenth overall. The final game in the series resulted in the New York Yankees winning, 5–2 over Philadelphia. It was the only game in the series decided by more than one run.

Curt Simmons, one of the Philadelphia starting pitchers during the season, had been called to military duty in September and was unavailable for this Series.

Phillies ace Robin Roberts didn't start Game 1 because he had had three starts in five days including the pennant winner on the final day of the regular season — played October 1, 1950 (three days before Game 1).

The Hall of Fame players in this series were Casey Stengel(Manager), Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio, Whitey Ford, Johnny Mize, Phil Rizzuto, Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts.
