Template:World Series Rating

The 1992 World Series was the first Series ever played outside of the United States of America. It pitted the American League champion Toronto Blue Jays against the National League champion Atlanta Braves. Toronto defeated Atlanta, 4 games to 2, marking the first time a Canadian team ever won the World Series.

A minor international incident occurred after a US Marine Corps color guard erroneously displayed the Canadian flag upside down during the second game's opening ceremony [1]. Speculation ensued amongst some Canadians that the flag was flown upside down as a deliberate insult to Canada, although most agreed the act was unintentional. The Corps apologized for the error and took pains to carry the flag properly after insisting that they would be honored to do so.

Umpires: Jerry Crawford (NL), Mike Reilly (AL), Joe West (NL), John Shulock (AL), Bob Davidson (NL), Dan Morrison (AL)

Trivia

  • Deion Sanders would've likely had been the World Series Most Valuable Player if the Braves had won. In four games, Sanders batted .533 with 4 runs, 8 hits, 2 doubles, and 1 RBI. In addition, Sanders became the first major leaguer to play in a World Series game and in a NFL game in the same week.
  • At 41 years of age, Dave Winfield became the oldest player to hit an extra base hit in the World Series.
  • The final out of the series came on a bunt by Braves outfielder Otis Nixon (an unusual occurrence with two out). The ball was fielded by Blue Jays reliever Mike Timlin who made the easy play to first baseman Joe Carter.
  • This was the first year this particular World Series logo was used. It would be used from 1992 thru the 1997 series, but there were alterations to the color of the logo as time went on.
  • The Blue Jays became the first team since the 1984 Detroit Tigers to win the World Series without having home field advantage.
