  • This is the World Series that Jack Nicholson's character R.P. McMurphy lobbies unsuccessfully to watch on television (and subsequently "announces" by imagining the action) in Miloš Forman's 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. He imagines quite a different scene than what occurred, however, as he describes Bobby Richardson, Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle and the Yankees knocking Koufax out of the box. In reality, the Yankees never led at any time in the Series, and only once in the entire Series (and that only for a half-inning) were the Yankees and Dodgers tied at a score other than 0-0. Later in the film, a brief clip of Ernie Harwell's NBC Radio broadcast of Game 2 can be heard.

The Dodgers win 2-1 and sweep the series in 4 straight, never before in all of their wonderful years had the Yankees lost 4 in a row in the World Series.

I waited seventeen years to bat in a World Series and when it finally happened, everyone was rooting for me to strike out!

Series -- from Wolfram MathWorld (793 words)
The term infinite series is sometimes used to emphasize the fact that series contain an infinite number of terms.
Riemann series theorem states that, by a suitable rearrangement of terms, a so-called conditionally convergent series may be made to converge to any desired value, or to diverge.
Although terms of a series can have either sign, convergence properties can often be computed in the "worst case" of all terms being positive, and then applied to the particular series at hand.
yankee (947 words)
In baseball, the World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball in North America, played in October after the end of the regular season between the pennant winner of the American League and the pennant winner of the National League.
Over the last century, the World Series has been woven into the fabric of America's culture evolving far beyond a mere baseball tournament.The Series winner is determined through a best-of-seven playoff, except in 1903, 1919, 1920 and 1921 when the winner was determined through a best-of-nine playoff, and is awarded the World Series Trophy.
The 1958 World Series was again an affair between the Yankees and the Braves, this time the Yankees won it 4 games to 3.
