  • Description

    THE NEW YORK YANKEES WON THE AMERICAN BASEBALL LEAGUE PENNANT FOR THE FIFTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR AND THE 29TH TIME IN HISTORY WHEN THEY DEFEATED CLEVELAND, 8-3, IN THE NEW YORK SATURDAY (3RD OCTOBER). THE VICTORY THAT MADE IT MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY OTHER TEAM TO WIN CAME ON THE DAY BEFORE THE END OF THE SEASON. THE YANKEES HAVE NOW WON PENNANTS IN 14 OUT OF THE LAST 16 YEARS.

    ALTHOUGH YANKEE PENNANTS ARE BECOMING AN OLD STORY, THE PLAYERS HELD THE USUAL CHAMPAGNE CELEBRATION PARTY IN THEIR DRESSING ROOM AFTER THE GAME.

    IT HAD APPEARED IN LATE AUGUST AND EARLY SEPTEMBER THAT THE YANKEES MIGHT BE DEPRIVED OF THIS PENNANT BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER BALTIMORE AND CHICAGO, THE TWO TEAMS AHEAD YANKEES AT THAT TIME, BROKE DOWN WHILE THE NEW YORK TEAM WENT ON A WINNING STREAK. AFTER THAT IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL THE USUAL RESULT WAS RECORDED.

    THIS WAS THE FIRST YEAR AS MANAGER FOR LARRY (YOGI) BERRA, FORMERLY A STAR CATCHER FOR THE YANKEES. HE IS VERY POPULAR WITH THE PLAYERS, WITH WHOM HE PLAYED AS A TEAM MEMBER FOR MANY YEARS, AND HE TOOK A JOLLY PART IN THE CELEBRATION.

    THE YANKEES WILL MEET THE NATIONAL LEAGUE WINNER THE WORLD SERIES, WHICH WILL START WEDNESDAY (7TH OCTOBER) UNLESS THE TIGHT NATIONAL LEAGUE RACE ENDS IN A TIE REQUIRING A PLAYOFF.)
