(Before It's News)

The 1966 Baltimore Orioles shocked the baseball world by taking 4 straight from the defending champs Los Angeles Dodgers.    

It was a classic mismatch on paper, namely because LA had Koufax and Drysdale.   However, it was also a case of underestimating the young Orioles who ended up throwing 3 shutouts and a 0.50 ERA for the series.

Frank Robinson was the MVP but it was the Orioles’ pitchers who made the difference.

Koufax retired a month after the Series.   The Orioles came back in 1969, 1970 and 1971.   It was the end of the Dodgers, who did not return to the Series until 1974, and the start of the Orioles who won 4 pennants over the next 6 seasons.
