World Series Team Stats 1903-2011.

I've started organizing and analyzing World Series (WS) data to supplement my findings in recent posts about the percent difference between an individual's On Base Plus Slugging (OPS) averages: regular season v. WS.

I now have data on each WS team.  I intend to determine the difference between a player's WS batting and that of his teammates.  I'll also look at team performance regular season v. WS.  Here are some preliminary WS findings.  For instance in 1960 Mickey Mantle's Batting Average (BA) was .400 but two other Yankees with more than ten AB were higher and the Yankees overall, including Mantle batted .338, a record; looks like the opposing pitching was pretty bad.

1960 Yankees:
- .911 OPS, highest of any team with more than four games; exceeded only by Yankees 1932, Oakland 1989, Boston 2007 - the only other WS teams over .900
- 55 runs; second: Toronto 1993 with 45

Fewest runs scored:
Los Angeles 1966 2 (second lowest OPS .418)
Philadelphia 1905 3 (lowest OPS: .373)
Yankees 1963 4, only four years after scoring 55; (fourth lowest OPS .448)

Most HR:
San Francisco 2002 14
Yankees 1956 12
Philadelphia 2009 11
Ten: Baltimore 1970, Yankees 1952,1958,1960,1964
