About 1960s Baseball

A Brand of Baseball You Won’t Find Today.

Great Pitchers

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, McCovey, Robinson … 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!

carl_yastrzemski_BAZ_63Of 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

  1. I absolutely agree. I grew up watching MLB during the 60’s. The moral fiber and player caliber of today’s players can not match those who played in the 60’s. Glitter and glamor cosmetic baseball with overpaid and pampered athletes is where it’s at. No comparison.
