Philadelphia third baseman Frank "Home Run" Baker earns his nickname during this series. His home run in Game 2 is the margin of victory for the Athletics, and his blast in Game 3 off Christy Mathewson ties that game, which the Athletics subsequently won. The Giants never recover.
The six consecutive days of rain between Games 3 and 4 cause the longest delay between World Series games until the 1989 earthquake-interrupted Series.
