Template:World Series Rating

In the 1926 World Series, the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Yankees in seven games.

Grover Cleveland Alexander, pitching on short rest, came out of the bullpen to strike out Tony Lazzeri with the bases loaded in Game 7 and lead the Cardinals to victory, upsetting the powerful New York Yankees Murderers' Row lineup. Social historians point out the irony of that matchup, as both men suffered secretly from epilepsy. The final out of the series is made when Babe Ruth, having been walked, inadvisably tries to steal and is easily thrown out. The series features a three-home run game by Ruth in Game 4, a World Series record only equalled twice: by Ruth again in 1928, and by Reggie Jackson in 1977.

Managers: Rogers Hornsby (St. Louis), Miller Huggins (New York)

Umpires: Bill Dinneen (AL), Hank O'Day (NL), George Hildebrand (AL), Bill Klem (NL)
