Remember World Series 2002
Baseball in 2002. Bud Selig is a commissioner of Major League Baseball, and Barry Bonds just broke the home track record for a season last season. The All-Star game ended in an embarrassing draw. The Expos are still in Montreal, and the Houston Astros are still in the National League.
This is a post-9/11 and congressional hearing on PED in baseball. No one knows what the defensive shift is, and the analysis is called Moneyball. And we ended up with a World Series that saw the Angels of Anaheim come face to face San Francisco Giants in an epic 7-game series where two franchises that have spent decades yearning for a World Series championship finally get a chance to take home one.
A lot has changed in baseball since then, but this series doesn’t seem to have happened that long. California’s Sharp Nights is a beautiful setting for one of the most exciting Series in recent memory. Let’s take a look back at the 2002 World Series.
