Great Moments In Baseball History: The 1974 A’s Beat Dodgers To Win Third Straight World Series Title

It doesn’t happen often: In fact, it’s only been done by two clubs in MLB history. Winning three straight World Series is an amazing task, and only the New York Yankees and the Oakland Athletics can lay claim to the achievement.

Great Moments In Baseball History: 1971 San Francisco Giants Win First NL West Division Crown

After moving to the West Coast in 1958, the Giants baseball organization wasn’t very successful. They’d lost the 1962 World Series in seven games to the New York Yankees, but it was almost a decade later before San Francisco made the playoffs again. Willie McCovey was 33, and Willie Mays was 40. So, it was a young star—Bobby Bonds—who led this Giants squad to the first National League West division title in team history.

Many current San Francisco Giants fans won’t remember the team’s first appearance in the World Series after moving from New York City, but the 1962 team was something special: Willie Mays was just one of many iconic players on this squad that took the mighty New York Yankees to the ninth inning of Game Seven before coming up just short.

30 Players: Dodgers’ Rookie Pederson Ready To Burst Onto LA Scene

An 11th-round Draft choice by the Dodgers out of high school, Los Angeles knew it was taking a risk by drafting Joc Pederson, as he had pretty high bonus demands and had already committed to play baseball at USC. But the Dodgers were OK with the risk that late, and OK with giving him a hefty bonus, and now five years later it looks as though it’s all going to pay off.
