Also see . . .  1944 World Series on Wikipedia. Dubbed by the local press as the "Trolley Series" and the "St. Louis Showdown" this was the only World Series match between St. Louis MLB teams. This was also one of two World Series that featured two teams from the same city outside New York (the other was in Chicago in 1906). On another historical note, Sportsman's Park was the last ballpark to have all of its World Series games throughout that season until 2020.
