History of the Subway Series

Since the inception of the modern-day World Series in 1903, the Fall Classic has been played within the borders of New York City a total of 14 times. These intraurban competitions to determine baseball’s best have become known as “Subway Series.”

Technically, the first two all-NYC series, in 1921 and 1922, were not Subway Series because the Yankees and Giants shared the same ballpark — the Polo Grounds in upper Mahnattan. The Yankees moved to their own stadium in the Bronx for the 1923 classic, and from there the battle lines were drawn, with games alternating between Yankee Stadium and either the Polo Grounds or Brooklyn’s Ebbetts Field, and later Shea Stadium in Queens.

The Yankees have been by far the dominant team in the Subway Series, winning 11 times (six times over the Dodgers, four times over the Giants and once over the Mets). The Giants’ only victories came in those first two all-Polo Grounds matchups, while the Dodgers brought a championship to Flatbush only once — in 1955.

Sadly, with the departure of the Giants and Dodgers to California in 1958, there was no Subway Series for 44 years

In 1962, the National League added a new entry in Gotham — the Mets. Still, there was no Subway Series for decades, as the fates of the Yankees and Mets were virtually opposite of each other. Whenever the Bronx Bombers would win, the Mets were languishing at or near the bottom of the pack. And when the Amazin’s (as Casey Stengel called them) made it to the top, the Yankees played uncharacteristically poorly.

That is, until 1999. For the first time ever, both the Mets and Yankees made it to post-season play in the same season. Baseball’s relatively new three-tier playoff system makes it a bit more difficult for teams to make it to the World Series, and while the Yankees advanced to the capture their 25th championship, the Mets fell in the NLCS to the pennant-winning Atlanta Braves.

Then came 2000, and both the Mets and Yankees advanced through the first two playoff rounds to reach the World Series. The teams were considered evenly matched, but the Yankees came out on top, winning their 26th championship. So at the start of the 21st Century, New York fans ride the underground rails once again as the Big Apple retains its position as the baseball capital of the world.

——————————

In addition to the New York Subway Series, there have been three other times when the entire World Series has been within a single urban area.

In 1906, the Chicago White Sox defeated the Chicago Cubs in the only championship battle entirely within the Windy City. In 1944, with many clubs’ rosters depleted by war, the hapless St. Louis Browns made it to the series, only to fall to the cohabitants of Sportsman’s Park, the Cardinals. And in 1989, the Bay Series pitted the Giants, now of San Francisco, against the Oakland Athletics in a series marred by a deadly earthquake just before the start of the third game.

The Athletics never met the Phillies when both were in Philadelphia, and there was never a Red Sox / Braves series in Boston. Nor have the Dodgers met the Los Angeles / California / Anaheim Angels since moving west from Brooklyn.

(The Giants and the Athletics had a run at another match-up in 2000, but ironically both were defeated by the New York teams in the Division Series.)
