Trivia

  • The Yankees' 11-1 postseason was the best ever and was tied by the Chicago White Sox in 2005.
  • This was the first sweep by a team without home-field advantage since 1966 when Baltimore swept the Dodgers.
  • Game 2 was noteworthy due to an awkward, live on-camera interview between NBC pregame reporter Jim Gray and Pete Rose, who was in attendance as a member of MasterCard's All Century Team. Gray came under fire by fans for his aggressive questioning of Rose's gambling habits which had gotten him banned from Major League Baseball ten years earlier. In protest, Chad Curtis, who hit a game winning home run in Game 3 snubbed Gray's request for an interview on live television.
  • The Yankees players were each paid $326,000 for this World Championship.
  • Hours before the start of Game 4, Yankees outfielder Paul O'Neill received word of his father's death.
  • The 1999 New York Yankees became the first team to win the World Series in consecutive sweeps since the 1938-1939 Yankees.
  • Many in the media said that this series would determine who "the team of the nineties" was because the Braves and the Yankees had been the two most dominant teams of the decade.
  • This was NBC's last telecast of the World Series, as its contract with Major League Baseball ended the following season.
