MLB: Most Hits, Home Runs and RBI in World Series History

2011 World Series: Texas Rangers vs. St. Louis Cardinals

Are yooooouuuuuu ready?  I am a little pumped up for this World Series between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals, even though cbssports.com is claiming “low hopes for World Series ratings.”  I don’t think so.

The Rangers are looking for their first title – again.  Last year they lost to the San Francisco Giants in their only other Fall Classic appearance (W.S. app. by team).  If they win, they will become only the 15th team to win the World Series after losing it the year before (here are the other 14 teams).

The Cardinals, on the other hand, are old pros.  They are second only to the New York Yankees in World Series titles (and now tied for second with the Dodgers and Giants franchises in World Series appearances or pennants).

The 2011 World Series starts tomorrow, Wednesday, October 19th at 8:05 PM ET.

Here are the players with the most hits, home runs and RBI in World Series history…whole buncha Yankees on there.

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times
    it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a awesome job with this.
    Also, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
    Exceptional Blog!
