Newsreel clip entitled "Dodgers Win World Series," shows highlights from game 6 of the 1959 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. Shot of packed stands at Chicago's Comiskey Park. White Sox ace pitcher Early Wynn gives up walk to Wally Moon and home run to Duke Snider. Snider seen rounding third as announcer notes this is his 11th World Series home run, a National League record. In fourth inning, Wynn gives up run-scoring hit to Maury Wills and is replaced by Dick Donovan, who gives up run-scoring double to Charlie Neal and home run to Wally Moon. White Sox first baseman Ted Kluszewski, in his famous sleeveless jersey, slugs a three-run homer into the right field stands to score the Sox' only runs of the day.
