The 1943 World Series matched the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals against the New York Yankees, in a rematch of the 1942 Series. The Yankees won the Series in five games for their 10th championship in 21 seasons. It was Yankees' manager Joe McCarthy's final Series win.

This Series was scheduled for a 3-4 format due to wartime travel restrictions. The 3-4 format meant there was only one trip between ballparks, but if the Series had ended in a 4-game sweep, there would have been 3 games played in one park and only 1 in the other.

Both teams lost several of their players from the 1942 World Series teams because of World War II, including such stars as Joe DiMaggio, Red Ruffing, and Enos Slaughter.

Records: New York Yankees (W: 98, L: 56, Pct: .636, GA: 13 ½) - St Louis Cardinals (W: 105, L: 49, Pct: .682, GA: 18)

Managers: Joe McCarthy (New York), Billy Southworth (St. Louis)

Umpires: Eddie Rommel (AL), Beans Reardon (NL), Joe Rue (AL), Bill Stewart (NL)
Note: Eddie Rommel became the third person to appear in the World Series both as a player and as an umpire.

TriviaEdit

  • "Murry Dickson, who helped close the door on the Cardinals in Game 5 by allowing no hits while on the mound, was on a ten (10) day pass from the United States Army!"
  • This was the only Yankee World Series win prior to 1977 in which Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, or Mickey Mantle was not on the roster. Spud Chandler was the only Yankee pitcher ever to be named AL MVP>
  • This was the only World Series in a span of 8 appearances where the St. Louis Cardinals were not victorious. (They lost in 1930 and 1968, and were winners in 1931, 1934, 1942, 1944, 1946, 1964, and 1967).
