Trivia

  • The 1982 Milwaukee Brewers hit 216 home runs during the regular season thus earning them the nickname Harvey's Wallbangers (after manager Harvey Kuenn). In a sharp contrast, the 1982 St. Louis Cardinals only hit 67 home runs; that's less than Gorman Thomas' 39 and Ben Oglivie's 34 combined.
  • 1982 World Series MVP Darrell Porter joined the Cardinals as a free agent in 1980 around the same time that they traded away catcher Ted Simmons to the Brewers.
  • Cardinals starting pitcher Joaquín Andújar was forced to leave Game 3 in the 7th inning after getting drilled just below the kneecap by a line drive from Ted Simmons. Andújar though, would return to start Game 7 in St. Louis.
  • Game 6 was hampered by two rain delays that totaled up to 2 1/2 hours.
  • Cardinals designated hitter Dane Iorg hit two doubles and a triple in Game 6. Three years later, Iorg, with the Kansas City Royals, would get the game winning hit in the now infamous sixth game of the 1985 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.
  • Though the teams had never met, the cities had an existing rivalry in the beer market, as St. Louis is the home of Anheuser Busch while Milwaukee is the home of Miller Brewing.
  • Had the Brewers won either Game 6 or Game 7, Brewers pitcher Mike Caldwell, who won two games, would have been named the MVP. As a result of the Cardinals' world championship, the MVP award was presented to Porter, thus keeping Bobby Richardson of the 1960 New York Yankees as the only World Series MVP from a losing team.
  • NBC's coverage of the 1982 World Series was perhaps significant in several respects. It was the last season, before NBC enlisted the services of legendary Los Angeles Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully (who at the time was moonlighting as an announcer for CBS Sports) to be their lead baseball announcer. It was the only World Series that veteran NBC sportscaster Dick Enberg ever called (he took turns with Vin Scully's future partner Joe Garagiola as the play-by-play man) despite the numerous Super Bowls that he announced for the network during the 1970s on through the late 1990s. NBC's coverage of the 1982 World Series also marked an early appearance of Bob Costas (who was covering his first ever World Series), who helped anchor NBC's coverage and presided over the World Series Trophy presentation ceremonies. In the following years, Bob Costas would emerge as one of NBC Sports' most recognizable and reliable stars. A year later, Costas was named NBC's #2 baseball play-by-play man and would team with Tony Kubek (who called his final World Series in 1982) for seven years.

Quote of the Series

"Sutter from the belt, to the plate...a swing and a miss! And that's a winner! That's a winner! A World Series winner for the Cardinals!" - Jack Buck on KMOX radio.
