Tigers Versus Cardinals in World Series

Yadier Molina hit a dramatic home run in the top of the 9th inning last night to lead the Cardinals over the Mets 3-1 in game 7 of the National League Championship. This will be the third time the Tigers have met the Cardinals in the World Series. The Cardinals beat the Tigers 4 games to 3 in 1934 and the Tigers beat the Cardinals 4-3 in 1968. This will be a special series for the Panas family as my father is a Cardinal fan who remembers the 1934 World Series. He also remembers 1968 (my first year as a Tiger fan) and has been waiting 38 years to get his revenge. More on that later. I'll also do my series preview tomorrow night.


  1. That will be special.

    And Lee - that makes you old :-)

  2. Being namely a Michigan fan I've only had to wait a year to get revenge on teams like Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Notre Dame. I really want to get revenge on Texas and Nebraska though, and it literally might be 38 years before we play either of those.

  3. I remember '68 well, being 16 at the time. My early Tiger heros were Harvey Kuenn, Rocky Colovito and, of course, Al Kaline. What a sweet feeing it was to come back after being down 3-1, especially beating Gibson!
