The Phils, thought by many to be the dark horse team in this year's playoffs, pulled off a seventh game miracle behind the stellar pitching of Silent Steve Carlton. The Yankees season, energized by a red-hot streak near season's end, came to an end just one run short of a championship.
Bill Mattis, SOM veteran, is shown above with a picture of his ace. Mattis was euphoric following the game, and had a lot to say. This was good because, as always, Carlton refrained from talking to the media.
Now, on to 1985.
