The 1932 World Series was the twenty-ninth edition of Major League Baseball's annual championship. It was played between the New York Yankees (American League) and the Chicago Cubs (National League), with the Yankees holding home field advantage.
The Yankees swept the Cubs, four games to none.
The series has been immortalized in many pictures and history books, especially the events of the top of the fifth inning of Game 3. With the score tied 4-4, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig hit consecutive home runs. Ruth's home run is known as his called shot, although there is some disagreement as to whether Ruth actually called the home run.
This was the last World Series of Ruth's illustrious career.
