Synopsis by Forrest Spencer
This video shows the highlights from the five game World Series between these two West Coast teams. The A's, having won the previous Series two years consecutively, were looking to make this championship outing against the Dodgers number three for their record. All the games were very close and competitive in the areas of pitching, fielding and hitting. Game Five was the decisive game, with a Two-to-Two tie that was broken by Joe Rudi hitting a homer off Dodger relief pitcher Mike Marshall. This highlight tape features many fine performances from both teams, including Catfish Hunter, Reggie Jackson, Bert Campanaris, Ken Holtzman, and Steve Garvey.
