1983 World Series

Plaque
1983 World Series Program


The 1983 World Series matched the American League champion Baltimore Orioles against the National League champion Philadelphia Phillies, with the Orioles winning four games to one. "The I-95 Series" - like the World Series two years later, also took its nickname from the Interstate that it took for the teams and fans to travel on--I-95 in this case.

This was the last World Series that Bowie Kuhn presided over as commissioner. It was also the last World Series aired on ABC before the network was taken over by Capital Cities Communications (coincidentally, that company's flagship station was Philadelphia's ABC affiliate, WPVI-TV - also the network's first affiliate)

The Philadelphia Phillies won the National League East division by 6 games over the Pittsburgh Pirates then defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers, three games to one, in the National League Championship Series. The Baltimore Orioles won the American League East division by 6 games over the Detroit Tigers then defeated the Chicago White Sox, three games to one, in the American League Championship Series.

The Orioles won the American League East rather comfortably while the Phillies needed a 22-7 record in September to break open a close eastern divisional race over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Powered by Eddie Murray’s two home runs, the Baltimore Orioles beat the Philadelphia Phillies in 5 games with manager Joe Altobelli winning the championship in his inaugural season with the Orioles, matching Earl Weaver, who had only one World Series win in his 16 years piloting the team.

The Hall of Fame players in the 1983 World Series were Eddie Murray, Jim Palmer, Cal Ripken Jr., Steve Carlton, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez and Mike Schmidt.
