 < 1942 World Series 1944 > 

The 1943 World Series matched the defending champion St. Louis Cardinals against the New York Yankees, in a rematch of the 1942 Series. The Yankees won the Series in five games for their tenth championship in 21 seasons. It was Yankees' manager Joe McCarthy's final Series win.

This Series was scheduled for a 3–4 format due to wartime travel restrictions. The 3–4 format meant there was only one trip between ballparks, but if the Series had ended in a four-game sweep, there would have been three games played in one park and only one in the other.

Due to World War II both teams' rosters were depleted. Johnny Beazley, Jimmy Brown, Creepy Crespi, Terry Moore, and Enos Slaughter were no longer on the Cardinal roster. Joe DiMaggio, Phil Rizzuto, Red Ruffing, and Buddy Hassett were no longer on the Yankee roster. Also Yankee Red Rolfe retired to coach at Dartmouth College.

Cardinal pitchers Howie Pollet, Max Lanier, and Mort Cooper ranked 1-2-3 in the National League in ERA in 1943 at 1.75, 1.90 and 2.30, respectively.
