1988 World Series

Plaque
1988 World Series Program


The 1988 Series matched the Oakland Athletics against the Los Angeles Dodgers, with the Dodgers upsetting the heavily favored A's to win the Series in five games (the exact opposite result of their 1974 meeting, which also went five games). The most memorable moment of the 1988 World Series occurred when injured Dodgers MVP Kirk Gibson, who could barely walk due to injuries suffered during the National League Championship Series, hit a pinch-hit, walk-off home run off of Athletics closer Dennis Eckersley in Game 1.

The Los Angeles Dodgers won the National League West division by 7 games over the Cincinnati Reds then defeated the New York Mets, four games to three, in the 1988 NLCS. The Oakland Athletics won the American League West division by 13 games over the Minnesota Twins then defeated the Boston Red Sox, four games to none, in the American League Championship Series. This was the first World Series to have the series logo on the players' uniforms.

The Hall of Fame players in the 1988 World Series were Tommy LaSorda(As Manager) and Dennis Eckersley.
