Trivia

  • Willie Aikens of the Royals became the first player in World Series history to have a pair of two-homer games.
  • George Brett had to have surgery to remove hemorrhoids after Game 2. In Game 3, a fully recovered Brett hit a home run as his Royals wound up winning in 10 innings by the score of 4-3.
  • According to Tug McGraw, one of the police horses, who lined up in the field during the 9th inning of Game 6, was not "stadium trained."
  • Phillies catcher Bob Boone's knees were so sore by the end of the World Series, that he could barely make it to the mound after the final out was recorded.
  • Willie Wilson of the Royals struck out 12 times in the six games after getting 230 hits in the regular season that year.

Quote of the Series

"The crowd will tell you what happens."--Joe Garagiola, anticipating the Phillies' first world championship.
