Synopsis by Alice Duncan
This historic 1983 World Series competition marked the Orioles' third World Series championship, with Rick Dempsey as MVP. Relive the exciting match between the versatile Orioles -- with Cal Ripken, Eddie Murray, and an array of skillful players -- and the veteran Phillies, including Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Tony Perez, and Steve Carlton (called the "Wheeze Kids" since their ages averaged 40). The contest began with a victory by Philadelphia in the opening game at Baltimore, followed by wins for the Orioles in the next four games. Two home runs by Murray and another by Dempsey clinched the tense fifth game to bring the Orioles to victory.
