In the 1911 World Series, the Philadelphia Athletics beat the New York Giants 4 games to 2.

Philadelphia third baseman Frank "Home Run" Baker earned his nickname during this Series. His home run in Game 2 off Rube Marquard was the margin of victory for the Athletics, and his blast in Game 3 off Christy Mathewson tied that game in the ninth, and the Athletics eventually won in the 11th. The Giants never recovered. An ironic sidelight was that Mathewson (or his ghostwriter) had criticized Marquard in his newspaper column after Game 2, for giving up the gopher ball, only to fall victim himself the very next day. Baker was swinging a hot bat in general, going 9 for 24 to lead all batters in the Series with a .375 average.

The six consecutive days of rain between Games 3 and 4 caused the longest delay between World Series games until the 1989 earthquake-interrupted Series, which incidentally featured the same two franchises, albeit on the west coast.
