Newsreel clip highlighting the New York Yankees' victory in the 1953 Baseball World Series over Brooklyn Dodgers (their fifth consecutive championship). Highlights from game two: Mickey Mantle of the Yankees hits a two-run homer off Preacher Roe to drive the Yankees to victory and put them up two games to none in the Series. Older woman bounces and cheers in stands. Game three: at Ebbets Field, Dodgers catcher Roy Campanella drives a home run to left field off Vic Raschi, Dodgers win. Fan in sunglasses cheers. Game four: Duke Snider (seen in closeups) hits double, home run and double to lead the Dodgers to victory and even up the Series at 2-2. Black, white Brooklyn fans cheer. Game five: Mickey Mantle (seen in closeup) hits a grand slam to squelch Dodger hopes. Game six: the Dodgers' Carl Furillo hits a two-run homer in the ninth inning to tie the game, but the Yankees' Billy Martin singles up the middle in the bottom of the ninth to score Hank Bauer and win it for the Yankes. Fans cheer as Yankees celebrate on the field. (Note: The first World Series was held in 1903. So this was the 50th anniversary of that sporting event.)
