The name "Subway Series" arises for a World Series played between two New York City teams. The series was punctuated by the Dodgers' Mickey Owen's dropped third strike of a sharply breaking curveball (a suspected spitball) pitched by Hugh Casey in the 9th inning of Game 4. The play led to a Yankees rally and brought them one win away from another championship.
