90 years ago today, The World Series was broadcast on the radio for the first time. The New York Giants beat the New York Yankees 5 games to 3. It was the last best of 9 series ever. 

Also of note: All eight games of the 1921 World Series were played at the Polo Grounds, the home field for both clubs from 1913-1922.
