This day in baseball: Boston wins the first World Series

The final game of the first-ever World Series was played in October 13, 1903 between the Boston Americans (Red Sox) and the Pittsburgh Pirates.  In Game 8 of the best-of-nine Series, Boston defeated Pittsburgh, 3-0, to take the championship 5 games to 3.  Boston’s Bill Dinneen earned the victory over Deacon Phillippe of the Pirates.

    Love that photo of Mr. Dinneen – he looks so elegant and so confident (and very particular about his hair). I wonder what he would have though of the style of Jacob deGrom? 🙂

    I think that’s when we had our priorities in order….a 9 game series. Maybe it sounds more than it is, just the first team to win 5 games I guess, but still more than our best of 7 and they had no domes either.
