Trivia

  • Each of Jackson's blasts came on the first pitch of an at-bat, and each was hit off of a different pitcher. The first two were hit into "Ruthville" in the not-very-distant right field area; the third was a truly "Ruthian" drive to the bleachers in straightaway center, into "the black". Howard Cosell, a member of the TV broadcast team, was moved to yell, "What a blow!"
mlb.com coverage of Game 6
  • The World Series had not been decided in six games since 1959. The odds against such a gap happening again are steep. Even if you assume that all results, 4-0, 4-1, 4-2 and 4-3 have an equal chance of occurring (they don't, a 4-2 series is the most likely result, tied with 4-3), the odds that one six-game series will not occur in seventeen years would be about 133 to 1 (3^{17}/4^{17}). Given that the real random probability of a 4-2 series is actually about 31%, the real odds against are more like 549 to 1 (69^{17}/100^{17}).
