Research into Game 7's and...

how the Cardinals-Rangers 2011 World Series compares.

Ranking All 36 World Series Game 7’s: Fan’s Opinion

There was a lot of research that went into this and it is comprehensive and doesn't automatically put 2011 Game 7 at the top (in fact it comes in at 26th)

I was especially surprised to see that three of my favorite 7th games landed fairly high on the list:

1) 1972 - Oakland Athletics 3, Cincinnati Reds 2 - came in at 14th.




Gene Tenace - Oakland A's Catcher


Johnny Bench blocking the plate


Johnny Bench getting duped by the A's


Oakland Athletics including Reggie Jackson, Sal Bando and Catfish Hunter


2) 1975 - Cincinnati Reds 4, Boston Red Sox 3 - came in at 7th.




Carlton Fisk willing his shot to stay fair in the 6th game


Johnny Bench catching Will McEnaney after winning the 1975 World Series


Pete Rose - MVP of the 1975 World Series


The Big Red Machine - 1975 World Champions


The Cincinnati Reds celebrating winning the 1975 World Series


3) 2001 - Arizona Diamondbacks 3, New York Yankees 2 - came in at 3rd.
