WORLD'S SECOND WORLD SERIES
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

When was the world's second World Series?

The second World Series in Major League Baseball was held in 1905 and saw the New York Giants and the Philadelphia Athletics competing for the title of World Champions. The games were held in Columbia Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and the Polo Grounds in New York, New York.

The only two games that were played in Columbia Park were Games 1 and 3 of the series and both were won by the New York Giants. The series lasted from October 9 – October 14 and the series ended when the Giants won on home turf in just five games. Every game ended in a shutout, with Philadelphia only winning one of the games.

Attendance ranged anywhere from 10,000 to 24,000 spectators but those who came to watch were truly witnessing a piece of history as players from both benches eventually went on to be inducted in the Hall of Fame. Those players were: John McGraw, Roger Bresnahan, Christy Mathewson, and Joe McGinnity for the New York Giants. The Philadelphia Athletics had their fair share of hall of famers as well and they included: Connie Mack, Chief Bender, Eddie Plank, and Rube Waddell.
