Trivia

  • "The I-95 Series" - like the World Series two years later, also took its nickname from the Interstate that it took for the teams and fans to travel on--I-95 in this case.
  • The top of the 7th inning of Game 1 was delayed due to ABC's Howard Cosell's interview with President Reagan. Some observers believe that the delay ultimately made Orioles pitcher Scott McGregor cold to the point of him giving up a decisive home run to Garry Maddox. McGregor would eventually redeem himself as he was the winning pitcher (in a complete game) in the clinching Game 5. Ronald Reagan's visit by the way marked the 12th time that a Chief Executive had attended a World Series game.
  • Former Orioles manager Earl Weaver served as a color commentator for ABC's World Series coverage (teaming with Al Michaels and Howard Cosell).
  • The 1983 Phillies had the lowest overall batting average (.195) for a World Series team since the 1974 Oakland Athletics.
  • The 1983 Philies were nicknamed the "Wheeze Kids" because they had four players who were at least 40 years old. Prior to the 1983 World Series, no team had ever had more than two.
  • The Orioles' loss in Game 1 marked the first time in six World Series that they had lost the first game.
  • When the Phillies benched Pete Rose in favor of Tony Pérez in Game 3, it ended a streak in which Rose played every inning of his 59 previous postseason games.
  • Jim Palmer's win in Game 3 made him the first and (as of September 2006) only pitcher to win a World Series game in three different decades.
