Regular season

With star slugger Babe Ruth hitting 59 home runs, setting a new major league home run record for the third consecutive year, while also having his greatest overall season statistically, the Yankees appeared to be the team to beat in the World Series. Their landlords, the New York Giants, had rebuilt after slipping a bit in the late 1910s, and had won the National League pennant. For the first time, all the games of a World Series would be held in the same ballpark. The best-5-of-9 Series (its last before returning to the best-4-of-7 format) saw the Yankees take a 3 games to 1 lead, but Ruth suffered a serious injury that took him out of the remaining games, save for one pinch-hit appearance, and the Giants rallied to win the Series 5 games to 3.
