Battle of the bay
Maniac-9 from St. Louis, MO
7 February 2012
The 1989 Major League Baseball World Series was competed with the
Oakland Athletics vs. the San Francisco Giants. Ironic that the first
time the bay area teams play each other in the world that the bay area
gets hit with a massive earthquake, delaying the series for a week.
The Oakland Athletics were by far the best team in 1989 with superstars
like Rickey Henderson, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Dave Stewart and
Dennis Eckersley and they dominated the Giants to a sweep. Stewart
earned the MVP award for the series winning two games with a below 2
Normally a 4 game sweep would make me not think highly of a series in
hindsight but at the time the A's were my favorite AL team with the
Cardinals being my overall favorite team.
