1966 World Series

Plaque
1966 World Series Program


The 1966 World Series matched the Baltimore Orioles against the defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers, with the Orioles sweeping the Series in four games to capture the first championship in franchise history.

Despite the general consensus that the Orioles were short of pitching when compared to the likes of Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax, Orioles pitching allowed only two runs in the entire series and ended up with a 0.50 team ERA, the second lowest in World Series history.

Jim Barbieri became the first player to play in a Little League World Series and also the real World Series with an at bat in the series.

The Hall of Fame players in this World Series were Luis Aparicio, Jim Palmer, Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Walter Alston(Manager), Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax.
