Trivia

  • 1982 World Series MVP Darrell Porter, himself a former Brewer, joined the Cardinals as a free agent in 1980 around the same time that they traded away catcher Ted Simmons to the Brewers.
  • Though the teams had never met, the cities had an existing rivalry in the beer market, as St. Louis is the home of Anheuser Busch while Milwaukee is the home of Miller Brewing.
  • Had the Brewers won either Game 6 or Game 7, Brewers pitcher Mike Caldwell, who won two games, would have been named the MVP. As a result of the Cardinals' world championship, the MVP award was presented to Porter, thus keeping Bobby Richardson of the 1960 New York Yankees as the only World Series MVP from a losing team.
  • This was the final World Series telecast for longtime NBC analyst Tony Kubek, and the only one for veteran announcer Dick Enberg. Enberg alternated play-by-play duties with Joe Garagiola, who was himself working his last Series in that role before moving to the color commentator position alongside Vin Scully (who called the 1982 World Series alongside Sparky Anderson for CBS Radio) the following season. On the other hand, this was NBC's first Series telecast to feature Bob Costas (who anchored the studio show and hosted the World Series Trophy presentation following Game 7). Costas and Kubek would subsequently team up as the network's secondary MLB announcing team from 1983 to 1989.
  • Both participants are currently in the NL Central, due to the transfer of the Brewers from the American League to the National League in 1998.
