1972 World Series

1972 World Series Program


The 1972 World Series matched the American League champion Oakland Athletics against the National League champion Cincinnati Reds, with the A's winning in seven games. Interestingly, these two teams would meet again in the Fall Classic 18 years later.

The Athletics won the American League West division by 5 ˝ games over the Chicago White Sox then defeated the Detroit Tigers, three games to two, in the American League Championship Series. The Cincinnati Reds won the National League West division by 10 ˝ games over both the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros, then defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates, three games to two, in the National League Championship Series. In doing so, the Reds, who won one fewer game than the Pirates during the regular season, became the first team in MLB history to reach the World Series without having the best record in its league. This had become a possibility when divisional play was introduced in 1969, but in each of the first six League Championship Series, the team with the better record still won and advanced to the World Series.

This was the Reds' second trip to the Series in three years. It was the Oakland Athletics' first trip to the Series, and the first for the Athletics franchise since their Philadelphia days (1931).

The Athletics prevailed in this matchup of what were to become the two premier Major League Baseball dynasties of the 1970s. Iconoclastic club owner Charlie Finley's "Swingin' A's" featured day-glo uniforms, lots of facial hair, colorful nicknames, and explosive personalities, while "The Big Red Machine" were a more traditional franchise with a more traditional look—and an everyday lineup packed full of future Hall of Famers. The Series was dubbed "The Hairs vs. the Squares".

After a 40-year absence and two franchise relocations, the A's had finally made it back to the Series. They would play the Series without their star right fielder Reggie Jackson, who was injured (pulled hamstring) stealing home in the final game of the season against Detroit. Darold Knowles was also missing. He broke his thumb during a game played on September 27, 1972—less than three weeks before the Series opener.

With Jackson out, Gene Tenace—who had hit five home runs during the entire 1972 season—would fill-in admirably socking four home runs equaling the World Series mark set by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Tenace also had nine RBI in the Series—no other Oakland player had more than one. He was voted winner of the World Series Most Valuable Player Award.

The Hall of Fame players in the 1972 World Series were Dick Williams(As Manager), Reggie Jackson(dnp), Catfish Hunter, Rollie Fingers, Sparky Anderson(As Manager), Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan and Tony Perez.
