The Anaheim Angels win the World Series, beating the San Francisco Giants 4-1 in Game 7 in Anaheim. After four decades of frustration, the Angels made their first appearance in the Fall Classic, while the Giants, in Barry Bonds’ only World Series appearance, fell short of achieving their ultimate goal. Bonds hit four home runs and batted .471 in the Fall Classic, but Troy Glaus, who had three home runs and eight RBI for the Angels, was named World Series MVP.
