1992 World Series

From Academic Kids

The 1992 World Series was the first Series ever played outside of the United States of America. It pitted the American League champion Toronto Blue Jays against the National League champion Atlanta Braves. Toronto defeated Atlanta, 4 games to 2, marking the first time a Canadian team ever won the World Series. A minor international incident occurred after a US Marine Corps colour guard erroneously displayed the Canadian flag upside down during the first game's opening ceremony, apparently unaware of its proper appearance.

Umpires: Jerry Crawford (NL), Mike Reilly (AL), Joe West (NL), John Shulock (AL), Bob Davidson (NL), Dan Morrison (AL)

Series MVP: Pat Borders, Toronto

Trivia

  • In a very rare occurrence, American League president Dr. Bobby Brown presented the World Series Trophy in the place of the commissioner. Just a month earlier, Fay Vincent was forced to resign and was replaced by Bud Selig (then owner of the Milwaukee Brewers) on what was originally preceived to be an "interim basis." Dr. Brown also presented the Blue Jays the trophy in 1993.
  • Deion Sanders would've likely had been the World Series Most Valuable Player if the Braves had won. In four games, Sanders batted .533 with 4 runs, 8 hits, 2 doubles, and 1 RBI.
