Summary
The 1945 World Series matched the American League Detroit Tigers against the National League Chicago Cubs. The Series was a rematch between the two opponents of the 1935 World Series. The Tigers won four games to three, giving them their second championship and first since their 1935 win. In 1968, the Tigers won their first championship since 1945, and the third in their history. The Tigers came back from a 3-1 deficit to win three in a row, largely on the arm of MVP Mickey Lolich, who won three complete games in a single World Series, a feat not duplicated since, as of 2006. 1984 factoids: rematch between managers Sparky Anderson (Detroit) and Dick Williams (San Diego); Game 5: last World Series afternoon game played outdoors; three players set World Series hitting records; Tiger Stadium the oldest ballpark to host a World Series; battle between fast-food chain owners Tom Monaghan (Domino's, Tigers) and Ray Kroc (McDonald's, Padres); Tigers lead the league from opening day, post a franchise-record 104 wins, becoming the third team in MLB history to lead the league wire-to-wire--winning by 15 games--then cruising through the postseason. It was one of the most dominant single-season performances of the 1980s
