They Played a Brand of Baseball
You Won't Find Today.
Some of the best in major league history. The 1960s featured the lowest combined ERA in the modern era.
Great Power Hitters
Mays, Maris, Aaron, Mantle, Killebrew … the list goes on and on. More than 40% of the hitters with 500 or more career home runs played during the 1960s.
Great Pennant Races … when pennant races really mattered!
Of the 20 pennant races during the 1960s (10 per league), 6 were decided by 2 games or less. There were no wild cards back then – just real league champions in the World Series.
Great October Classics
And what World Series they were! From Mazeroski’s walk-off homer that won the 1960 World Series to dominating October pitching of Koufax and Gibson and Lolich to the New York Mets’ miracle run in 1969, it was a decade of drama that’s never been matched.

It was “pure” baseball before the lawyers and agents took over. (When MM stood for Mickey Mantle, not Marvin Miller.)
