1962 World Series

Plaque
1962 World Series Program


The 1962 World Series matched the defending champion New York Yankees against the San Francisco Giants, who had won their first NL pennant since moving from New York in 1958, defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers in a three-game playoff.

This Series, which was closely matched in every game, is remembered for its then-record length of thirteen days, caused by rain in both cities, and its appropriately dramatic conclusion. The Yankees took the Series in seven games for the twentieth championship in team history. To put it another way, the Yankees had won their first World Series in 1923, so of the 40 Series played during 1923–1962, the Yankees had won half of them.

The Giants had a better team batting average, earned run average, hit more home runs, triples, and doubles, yet lost the Series.

The Hall of Fame players in this World Series were Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Mickey Mantle, Orlando Cepeda, Juan Marichal, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey.
