Sandy Quiets the Yankees
Sandy Koufax had a superb season in 1963. He tied for the National League lead in wins with 25 and topped the circuit with 11 shutouts, 306 strikeouts, and a 1.88 ERA. Yet he said he felt somewhat ambivalent before he pitched the first game of that season's World Series. "I felt that I had to show myself and my team and the Yankees too that they were just a team of baseball players, not a pride of supermen," he said.
LA Polished Off Yanks
The Dodgers [celebrated] their third World Championship in nine years. LA's sweep of the 1963 World Series was so one-sided that the Yankees were held to just four runs in the four-game tournament, the lowest of any team in the fall classic since the 1905 Philadelphia Athletics.
