I had completely forgotten that series. I see Koufax won Game 7 2-0.


Of course, your Twins beat my Braves in the 1991 Series (I was in Lomé, Togo) in 1 of the most memorable Game 7s ever. I like the Twins fine, but I disliked the stadium & the turf. In fact, the turf played a key role in the outcome, as Gladden's lead-off double in the 10th was an Astroturf double. It was a bloop to left field that took a high bounce off the turf. It was a shame that such a great game was influenced by Astroturf, but that's the way things go.
