Whitey Ford’s World Series Scoreless Streak
In the 1961 World Series, Yankees’ legend Whitey Ford smashed Babe Ruth’s Fall Classic record of 29.2 continuous scoreless innings of work.
In addition to that, the southpaw took home the 1961 series MVP honors as New York topped the Cincinnati Reds in five games. Ford pitched a complete game shutout in Game 1 and hurled five scoreless in Game 5.
This unbelievable feat stood until Mariano Rivera broke it in the 2000 American League Championship series.
