"The matchup between the Yankees and Phillies marked the first time since 1926 (Yankees vs. Cardinals) that the two teams who led their respective leagues in home runs faced off in the Fall Classic." I think it's happened a few times since 1926. 1937, 1941, 1954 and 1955 all match as well.

I think my data is a little off somewhere because I show game 1 winners as winning 64 of 103 (I eliminated all ties from my data, which I think is the difference), but the percentages actually go slightly up with each of the first few games: Win 1st decision: 64 of 103 (maybe 63, depending on where my error is) G2: 68 of 103 G3: 69 of 103 G4: 75 of 103 G5: 56 of 83 G6: 43 of 61 G7: 38 of 39 (the Black Sox won game 7 of a best of 9) G8: 3 of 3

Yeah, but if you were planning on going to the 1pm game and have plans for 8pm, you\'re going to be in trouble. You don\'t think some significant percentage of ticketholders have an evening flight out of town that evening?
