The New York Yankees win the World Series for the 20th time, beating the San Francisco Giants 1-0 in a thrilling Game 7 at Candlestick Park. The series is redemption for Ralph Terry, who gave up Bill Mazeroski’s home run two years earlier. This time Terry gets a complete game win in Game 7 and wins the Series MVP, as he strands the tying and winning run in scoring position when Willie McCovey lines out to Bobby Richardson to end the game.
