    If memory serves and my counting is correct, in the 16 seasons 1949-64, a team from the Big Apple was in the WS 15 times, and in six of those WS, both teams were NY teams. In those 15 WS, a team from NY won all the marbles 11 times. The CFs on those teams were guys named DiMaggio, Mantle, Mays, and Snider, all HOFers.

    We were lucky to have had one team, although they eventually had some good years.
