2006: After leading the Padres to two consecutive NL West titles, Bruce Bochy, with a year left on his contract, leaves San Diego to become the manager of the division rival San Francisco Giants. The 51-year-old skipper, who compiled a 951-975 (.494) during his 12 seasons in the Friars dugout, signs a three-year deal worth approximately $6 million.

2002: In the team’s 42nd season, the Angels finally win a World Series title by beating the Giants, 4-1, in Game 7 at Edison Field. Garret Anderson‘s three-run double provides enough offense for John Lackey to become the first rookie to win a seventh game since 1909, when Babe Adams accomplished the feat for the Pirates.

1999: The Yankees, behind the solid pitching of Roger Clemens, sweep their second straight Fall Classic, beating the Braves, 4-1. Atlanta joins the New York Giants (1910-19) as the only teams to lose four World Series in a decade.

1989: After a 10-day delay due to the Loma Prieta earthquake, the World Series resumes with the A’s beating the Giants in Game 3, 13-7. Oakland joins the 1928 Yankees as only the second team in major league history to hit five home runs in a Fall Classic
