World Series
 < 1951 1953 > 

The 1952 World Series featured the three-time defending champion New York Yankees beating the Brooklyn Dodgers in seven games. The Yankees won their fourth straight title – tying the mark they set between 1936 and 1939 under manager Joe McCarthy, and Casey Stengel became the second manager in Major League history with four (4) consecutive championships. The Yankees made in 5 in a row in 1953 and subsequent team has had as many as 4 in row. It was the 15th championship in the Yankees' history, and the third defeat of the Dodgers in six years.

Duke Snider became the 1st National League player and only the 3rd player overall to hit 4 home runs in one World Series. Babe Ruth did it in 1926 (also in a losing cause) and Lou Gehrig in 1928. Snider again hit 4 home runs in the 1955 World Series (won by Brooklyn) to become the only player ever to turn the trick twice. Gene Woodling, in Game 1, became the first player in World Series history to record a "pinch-hit triple."

In Game 7, the Yankees' second baseman Billy Martin made a game-saving catch on a pop fly hit by Jackie Robinson in 7th inning. Also, the home run hit by Mickey Mantle during the eighth inning of Game 6 was significant because it was the first of his record eighteen (18) career World Series home runs.

This World Series marked the last one where Red Barber,ed up with Mel Allen, was one of the TV announcers.

Series quotesEdit

Boom. Look out, look out...you needn't look anymore.

Red Barber, after Duke Snider hit himself on the right-field wall at Ebbets Field in Game Seven.

It's a high pop-up...Who's going to get it? Here comes Billy Martin digging hard...and he makes the catch at the last second! How about that!

Mel Allen, describing Billy Martin's Game Seven catch.
