Template:World Series Rating

The 1909 World Series featured the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Detroit Tigers. The Pirates won the Series in seven games to capture their first championship of the modern Major League Baseball era, but their second championship in the club's history.

The Tigers might have finally won the Fall Classic in their third try had it not been for Babe Adams. A rookie pitcher for Pittsburgh that year, manager Fred Clarke started him, on a hunch, in Game 1. Adams won that game and two more.

Managers: Fred Clarke (Pittsburgh), Hughie Jennings (Detroit)

Umpires: Jim Johnstone (NL), Billy Evans (AL), Bill Klem (NL), Silk O'Loughlin (AL)
For the first time, four umpires were used at the same time, with the standard plate umpire and base umpire along with two outfield umpires.
