The 1964 World Series, the 56th playing for the championship of Major League Baseball, pitted the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals against the American League champion New York Yankees, with the Cardinals prevailing in seven games.
Series MVP: Bob Gibson (St. Louis)
- In an unusual move, the Yankees fired Berra after the Series ended, replacing him with Keane, who had resigned from the Cardinals.
- For the first time in the Series, all six umpires rotated through the infield positions. In all Series from 1947 through 1963, only the four infield umpires had rotated, with the last two umpires working only in the outfield throughout the Series.
- The Cardinals are the only team that has played the Yankees more than once in a World Series and holds a winning edge (3 to 2).
