1933 World Series Scorecard The 1933 World Series pitted the National League champion New York Giants versus the American League champion Washington Senators. (The team was officially the Nationals, but they were commonly called the Senators by baseball writers and fans.) Both managers were player/managers. Bill Terry, New York's first baseman, was in his first full season as Giants' manager. Likewise, Joe Cronin was in his first full season as the Senators' pilot. Cronin played shortstop for Washington. This is what a souvenir scorecard from Washington's Griffith Stadium looked like. The Giants won the first two games at the Polo Grounds, lost the third game at Griffith Stadium, but won the next two--both in extra innings--to capture the World Series in five games. To date, Game Five, on October 7, was the last World Series game played in Washington.

A while ago I read an excellent history of the New York Giants (titled Giants of the Polo Grounds). One New York writer said, 'The real baseball fans of New York followed the Giants. The tourists followed the Yankees.'

Lava I grew up outside of Dallas and we were Dodgers fans, no teams in Texas at the time. The Giants were a good team and the Yankees were the team of dislike. Dislike, that's a nice way to putting it. But, Ohhhh, the Dodgers! Duke Snider, Gil Hodges, Roy... After they moved to Los Angeles they lost their luster. Or so we thought.

Of course, all of that is irrelevant if you came from BROOKLYN :~)

For me the most attractive part of this scorecard is the price: a dime!
