1999 World Series Program.jpg

The 1999 World Series was the championship series of Major League Baseball's (MLB) 1999 season. The 95th edition of the World Series, it was a best-of-seven playoff between the defending American League (AL) and World Series champion New York Yankees and the National League (NL) champion Atlanta Braves in a rematch of the 1996 World Series, in which the Yankees prevailed. The Yankees swept the 1999 Series in four games for their second consecutive title, third in four years, and 25th overall. It was the Yankees' third straight defeat of the Braves franchise in the Fall Classic (having beaten the Milwaukee Braves in the 1958 World Series in addition to their 1996 victory over the Atlanta Braves). Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was named the World Series Most Valuable Player.

The Yankees advanced to the World Series by defeating the Texas Rangers in the AL Division Series, three games to zero, and then the Boston Red Sox in the AL Championship Series, four games to one. The Braves advanced to the series by defeating the Houston Astros in the NL Division Series, three games to one, and then the New York Mets in the NL Championship Series, four games to two. The 1999 Series is remembered for Chad Curtis's walk-off home run in Game 3, which gave the Yankees a 6–5 victory, and Game 2's infamous interview of Pete Rose by Jim Gray on NBC. This was the first World Series since the advent of the three-division era in 1994 to feature both number-one seeds from the AL and NL, which did not repeat again until 2013 and again in 2020.

Background[edit]

This featured a rematch of the 1996 World Series. It would also be the last World Series until 2013 in which the two teams with the best regular-season records in their respective leagues would face off. Perhaps most significantly, it was the first World Series ever in which the competing teams had played each other in the regular season. The Braves beat the Yankees at Yankee Stadium 2-1 in a three game stretch between July 15 and 17. Although interleague play had begun in 1997, neither the 1997 nor 1998 series saw a rematch from the regular season.

The 1999 World Series also feted the All-Century Team, featuring the greatest players of the 20th century as voted by both fans and sportswriters. One of the players on the All-Century Team, Yankee legend Joe DiMaggio, had died in March of that year, causing the Yankees to honor him by wearing a black #5 on their sleeves.

Matchups[edit]

Game 1[edit]

The 1999 series opened with Greg Maddux facing Orlando Hernández in Game 1, becoming the latest a World Series has ever begun (October 23) beating the previous record by 2 days (1995 World Series, October 21). The Braves got on the board first in the series when Chipper Joneslaunched a home run down the right field line in the fourth inning. That would be the only hit that El Duque would allow through seven innings while striking out ten Atlanta batters. It would also be the only home run by the Braves in the series. Maddux had pitched scoreless three-hit ball through seven before running into major trouble in the eighth, which began when Scott Brosius singled for the third time in the game. Pinch hitter Darryl Strawberry walked and Chuck Knoblauch reached when Braves first baseman Brian Hunter mishandled his sacrifice bunt attempt. Derek Jeter stroked a single into left with the bases loaded driving in a run. With still nobody out and the bases juiced, Atlanta reliever John Rocker gave up a two-run single to Paul O'Neill through the right side making it 3–1 Yankees. Later in the inning, Rocker walked Jim Leyritz with the bases loaded to force home another run. Mariano Rivera picked up the save to wrap up the 4–1 victory.

Game 2 featured the presentation of the All-Century team and an explosion of Yankees runs off Atlanta starter Kevin Millwood. In the first inning, Knoblauch, Jeter, and O'Neill opened the game with singles with O'Neill driving in Knoblauch. After a double-play groundout, both Tino Martinez and Scott Brosius drove in a run with singles each to give the Yankees a 3–0 lead in the first. In the third, Bernie Williams and Martinez hit leadoff singles before the former scored on Ricky Ledee's double. Terry Mulholland relieved starter Kevin Millwood and after getting two outs, shortstop Ozzie Guillén's error on David Cone's ground ball allowed Martinez to score. The Yankees added to their lead off of Mulholland on Martinez's groundout that scored Jeter in the fourth, who led off the inning with a double, and Knoblauch's single in the fifth that scored Brosius, who also doubled to lead off the inning. Cone shutout the Braves for seven innings while Ramiro Mendoza pitched a scoreless eighth, but in the ninth inning, allowed a leadoff single to Chipper Jones. After a two-out walk, Jones scored on Greg Myers's single. Jeff Nelson relieved Mendoza and allowed an RBI double to Bret Boone before getting Otis Nixon to ground out to end the game and give the Yankees a 2-0 series lead. This was the last victory of a World Series Game 2 on the road until the Texas Rangers won Game 2 of the 2011 World Series in St. Louis.

Golfer Payne Stewart, a good friend of Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, died between Games 2 and 3. Yankees right fielder Paul O'Neill's father died a few hours before Game 4.

Game 3[edit]

Game 3 in New York matched up lefties Andy Pettitte and Tom Glavine, who had been scheduled to start Game 1 but was scratched and moved back to Game 3 due to a stomach virus. Pettitte was rocked early. Bret Boone drove in Gerald Williams with a RBI double in the first. The Yankees tied the game in bottom of the inning on Paul O'Neill's RBI single, but in the third, Brian Jordan had an RBI single scoring Boone, and Jose Hernandez doubled in Jordan and Andruw Jones. In the fourth inning, Bret Boone doubled in Gerald Williams for a second time in the game to make the score 5–1. He then was called out trying to steal third. Replays appeared to show that he slid in just ahead of the tag, and this call likely cost the Braves a run, as Chipper Jones doubled two pitches later. Glavine was sharp through seven innings but gave up homers to Tino Martinez in the fifth and Chad Curtis, trimming the Braves lead to 5–3. The Yankees bullpen was solid, holding the Braves scoreless after Pettitte left the game. In the eighth, a tiring Glavine surrendered a two-run homer to Knoblauch to tie up the game at 5–5. There had been question as to whether to leave Glavine in for that inning. He had only thrown 72 pitches, but said later that he felt like his body was tiring coming off the illness that sidelined him from his scheduled Game 1 start, and felt hesitant to go back out but said he would try for one more inning. Glavine would be replaced by John Rocker who shut out the Yankees until he was relieved after the ninth. The score remained knotted until the bottom of the tenth when Chad Curtis blasted a walk-off home run—his second home run of the game—off Mike Remlinger, giving the Yankees a commanding 3–0 lead in the Series.

Game 4[edit]

Game 4 featured the presentation of the Roberto Clemente Award to Tony Gwynn, followed by a battle of hard-throwing Cy Young Award winners, Roger Clemens and John Smoltz. In the third inning, the Yanks broke through when Tino Martinez singled off Ryan Klesko's foot with the bases loaded, driving in two runs. Jorge Posada followed with another RBI single, making the score 3–0. Clemens, seeking his first World Series victory, was outstanding, the only Braves scoring coming in the eighth when Boone singled in Walt Weiss. Jim Leyritz added another Yankees run with a shot in the eighth, adding to his legacy as a great postseason performer and as one of the thorns in the side of Braves fans. Rivera, who was named Series MVP, got Keith Lockhart to fly out to LF Curtis for the final out of the season.

The 1999 New York Yankees became the first team to win the World Series in consecutive sweeps since the 1938–1939 Yankees. It was the first sweep by a team without home-field advantage since 1966 when Baltimore swept the Dodgers. The Yankees' 11–1 postseason record was the best ever in the wild card era, which was later tied by the Chicago White Sox in 2005 (the 1976 Reds finished a perfect 7–0 in the postseason, which preceded the permanent introduction of the wild card and Division Series). The Yankees players were each paid $326,000 for this World Championship.

With the Yankees' sweep of the Braves, this was the second time in 1999 that a New York City team had swept a team from Atlanta out of a playoffs; the Knicks had swept the Hawks in the second round of the NBA Playoffs during their Cinderella run to the NBA Finals, where they lost to the San Antonio Spurs. It would also mark the final time the Yankees clinched the championship at the old Yankee Stadium.

The powerhouse Braves batted just .200 in the 4-game Series.

Aftermath[edit]

This was the fifth World Series appearance in the 1990s for Atlanta, but the new decade would not be as favorable to them, the closest they got to returning to the World Series was in the 2001 NLCS where they lost to Arizona in five games. To date, the 1999 World Series is the Braves' last Fall Classic. Game 2 also marks the second and final time that Turner Field hosted a World Series game.

The Yankees would continue their dynasty by defeating the New York Mets in the next year's World Series. They won a fourth straight pennant in 2001, but they lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks in that season's World Series. They would reach the World Series again in 2003 (losing to the Florida Marlins) and 2009 (defeating the defending champions, the Philadelphia Phillies).

On October 11, 2005, A&E Home Video released the New York Yankees Fall Classic Collectors Edition (1996–2001) DVD set. Game 3 of the 1999 World Series is included in the set.

Media coverage[edit]

This was NBC's 39th and final World Series telecast to date, as Fox aired the next World Series as part of the contract in place, and acquired the exclusive broadcast rights of Major League Baseball beginning in 2001. Bob Costas provided play-by-play while Joe Morgan served as analyst for the series. Hannah Storm served as pre-game host with Barry Larkin serving as the analyst. The field reporters were Jim Gray (Yankees dugout) and Craig Sager (Braves dugout) on loan from Turner Sports.

With the Knicks having played in the NBA Finals in June, this was the second championship series in 1999 that NBC broadcast involving teams from New York. Bob Costas, Jim Gray, and Hannah Storm were involved both times: Costas with play-by-play, Gray as a reporter, and Storm as pre-game host. This was the most recent year that a city hosted both the NBA Finals and the World Series in the same year, until Cleveland did so in 2016.

Once again, ESPN Radio provided coverage of the World Series. Play-by-play man Jon Miller was joined in the booth by Rick Sutcliffe, who substituted for the unavailable Joe Morgan.

October 26, 1999: Chad Curtis whacks a World Series walk-off home run for Yankees

The third game of the 1999 World Series was a critical moment for the visiting Atlanta Braves and the New York Yankees alike. The Yankees had burned Atlanta in the first two games in Atlanta, 4-1 and 7-2, so were now leading the World Series two games to none. A win in this game would give them a commanding lead in the series.

Two of the teams’ titans faced off: the Braves’ Tom Glavine, a future 300-game winner and Hall of Famer, against the Yankees’ Andy Pettitte, a member of the “Core Four,” whose number 46 would ultimately be retired and honored in Monument Park. Both were control pitchers, with superb location.

Pettitte went to work on leadoff hitter Gerald Williams, who lashed a single to right field. He moved to third on Bret Boone’s double. Chipper Jones dribbled a groundball to third baseman Scott Brosius. The normally sure-gloved Brosius intended to throw home to nail Williams at the plate, but could not scoop up the ball on the first try. He had to settle for erasing Jones at first, and the run scored.

The Yankees struck back at Glavine in the first inning when leadoff hitter Chuck Knoblauch smacked a line drive to right that popped out of Brian Jordan’s glove for an error. He moved to third on a sharp Derek Jeter lineout to right, and scored when Paul O’Neill singled to left. A rally was building that was ended seconds later when Bernie Williams hit another liner, this time straight at first baseman Brian Hunter, who stepped on first base for the inning’s final outs: an unassisted double play.

The score remained tied at 1-1 until the top of the third, but Pettitte did not have his best stuff, putting Hunter on in the second inning, and coughing up a wild pitch. Meanwhile, Glavine, who had missed starting Game One with a stomach virus, was popping his way through the Yankee lineup with pinpoint control on his sinking fastball.

Pettitte got into trouble in the third. Second baseman Boone greeted him with a double to center, then moved to third on Jones’s grounder to short. Right fielder Jordan singled Boone home. Center fielder Andruw Jones singled Jordan to second, bringing up DH José Hernández, who bashed a double to left field, scoring both runners. The Braves now led 4-1, with a runner on second and one out. A lineout and fly out ended the rally.

The lead widened in the top of the fourth, when left fielder Gerald Williams smacked a one-out triple to center and Boone bashed another double, this one to left, scoring Williams. The Braves now led 5-1.

After Boone was caught stealing third, Chipper Jones singled to center. Yankees manager Joe Torre shuffled out to the mound to remove the puzzled Pettitte, summoning the reliable Jason Grimsley. Torre gave Grimsley his usual simple brief for these situations: “Hold them here and get yourself a win.”1 While Torre did so, Derek Jeter and Chuck Knoblauch, trying to keep warm in the cold, told each other the same thing.

They were right. The tide began to turn in the bottom of the fifth. Left fielder Chad Curtis faced Glavine, who was still locating his pitches perfectly. With two out, Curtis tore a home run into the right-field seats to make the score 5-2. It was his first postseason home run. An unnerved Glavine served up a single to catcher Joe Girardi, but Knoblauch’s groundball back to the box ended the inning.

Grimsley had done an excellent job all year, posting a 7-2 record, with a 3.60 ERA in 55 relief appearances. He held the ferocious Braves at bay for 2⅓ innings, yielding only two hits.         

Glavine was still pitching in the bottom of the seventh with one out when Tino Martinez, the Yankees first baseman, came to bat. He smashed a pitch into the right-field second deck to cut the Braves’ lead to 5-3.

Jeff Nelson, an imposing figure at 6-feet-8, came on for the eighth inning, and he stifled the Braves efficiently on a strikeout and two fly outs. Braves manager Bobby Cox got his eighth-inning pitcher, Mike Remlinger, and his closer, John Rocker, ready in the bullpen. Glavine had done his job — seven good innings. But Glavine’s pitch count was low and the cerebral Massachusetts native assured Cox he felt fine. “He was throwing great,” Cox said later. “He didn’t want to come out of the game. I asked him if he was tired and he said no.”2

Girardi led off the home half of the inning and lined a single to right. Next up was Knoblauch, who ripped a powerful drive that sent Jordan reaching back over the wall. The ball jumped into Jordan’s glove and back out, landing in the first row of seats in the first deck. The game was tied, 5-5.

“I was so happy, I wanted to lift him up and carry him,” Yankees center fielder Williams said after the game. “But I realized we still had to win the game.”3

Cox was bitter in his postgame analysis, remembering how a major factor in his 1996 World Series loss to these same Yankees was caused by an umpire preventing one of his outfielders from reaching a crucial pop fly. Now he saw Knoblauch’s short home run in the same way. “We basically got beat with the pop-up,” he said. “It was a Yankee home run. We got beat with a 315-foot home run. You get a 315-foot fly ball and it’s an out in my book.”4

Knoblauch’s response was simple. If that was good luck, “We’ll take it every time.”5

That was all for Glavine. Cox strolled out to the mound, took the ball, and summoned Rocker to prevent any further damage.

He yielded a single to Jeter, who was erased when O’Neill’s bunt turned into a double play, followed by Bernie Williams’s fly ball to center.

Nonetheless, the Yankees were feeling happy, Yankees pitcher David Cone said later.6 They were turning the game over to Mariano Rivera.

But Boone rapped his fourth hit of the night, a single to right, to lead off the ninth inning. Gambling on that one run, Cox sent in Otis Nixon to run for him, but the speedy Nixon was caught stealing second.7 Rivera quickly disposed of the next two hitters.

Rocker matched Rivera’s excellence in the bottom of the ninth with three quick outs.

On to the 10th: the 50th extra-inning game in World Series history. After Jones grounded out to second to open the inning, Cox sent veteran Ozzie Guillén to bat for Hernández. Rivera struck out Guillén. Ryan Klesko pinch-hit and singled to right, and Greg Myers batted for first baseman Hunter, grounding out to Martinez.

Pinch-hitters Klesko and Myers stayed in the game, at first base and behind the plate respectively. Cox, recognizing that he had gotten two innings out of Rocker and needed him the next day, summoned Remlinger from the bullpen to face leadoff hitter Curtis.

Curtis’s plan was small, he said later. To hit the ball up the middle, not do too much with the pitch, and simply start the inning.

Curtis fouled off the first pitch, stepped out, and then back in. Remlinger threw a changeup, and Curtis hit the ball deep to left field. Curtis himself, watching the drive from the plate, flipped his bat and ran around the bases, expressionless. “I don’t remember anything,” he said later when asked about the ritual trip around the bases to score the run and end the game.8 The ball had landed in the visitors’ bullpen.

Curtis leaped into a sea of happy teammates at home plate to celebrate the Yankees’ 6-5 victory. The Yankees were now one game away from sweeping the Atlanta Braves and winning their 25th world championship.

There was more: It was Torre’s 11th consecutive World Series victory, which broke the major-league record set by his illustrious predecessor Joe McCarthy, who won 10 straight World Series games between 1937 and 1941. Curtis’s game-winning shot was the 11th time a World Series game had ended on a home run. The last one had been Joe Carter’s legendary 1993 world championship blast. The four Yankee home runs were the most in a World Series game since the A’s bashed five at the expense of the San Francisco Giants in Game Three of the 1989 World Series. This was the Yankees’ 100th World Series game win in their long and amazing history.

Author’s Note

The author of this story was at the game with his wife, seated in the right-field upper deck. He still has his scorecard and his ticket in its plastic lanyard, and can vividly remember Chad Curtis’s game-ending home run flying toward the visitors’ bullpen. He does not remember where it landed, as he and everyone else were soon facing home plate to watch Curtis cross it.

Series quotes

Swing and a drive to left. It's deep! It's very deep! It's 3-0 New York in the Series!

Bob Costas' call of Chad Curtis' walkoff home run in Game 3.

A pop in to left...the New York Yankees...World Champions. Team of the decade. Most successful franchise...of the century.

Bob Costas of NBC calling the last out in Game 4 when Keith Lockhart flied out to Chad Curtis in left field.

The crowd standing, cameras flashing, and Rivera as cool as a cucumber. The 1-0. Swung on. Hit in the air to left center. Bernie trots over, Curtis is there. Curtis makes the catch! Ballgame over! World Series over! Yankees win! The Yankees win!

John Sterling calls the last out

And the Yankees are one win away from baseball nirvana!

Michael Kay, following Chad Curtis' walk off home run in Game 3.

I can't. After what happened with Pete we decided not to say anything.

Chad Curtis turning down Jim Gray's request for an interview after his walk off home run in Game Three. Gray did a controversial interview with Pete Rose in Game Two in which he pressured him to admit he bet on baseball. George Steinbrenner was reportedly outraged at Curtis, as was Joe Torre. Torre was prominently used in an interview with Gray before Game Three to remove any speculation the Yankee clubhouse shared his sentiments. Curtis was traded to the Texas Rangers after the World Series on December 13, 1999.

Television coverage

This was NBC's 39th and, through 2013, final World Series telecast. The following year, FOX acquired the exclusive broadcast rights of Major League Baseball.

The Yankees seemingly had history at their advantage in search of their third World Championship in four years. The last World Series of the millennium featured the franchise with the most titles in the 20th century. They had started their late 1990s run by upsetting the Braves' hopes for a second consecutive crown in 1996. The Braves, advancing from an arduous NLCS against the Mets, cooled off the Yankees for most of Game 1 on a chilly night at Turner Field. Greg Maddux, named an emergency starter when Tom Glavine suffered the flu, allowed three New York singles through seven innings. He held the lead on Chipper Jones' solo home run, Atlanta's only hit against Orlando Hernandez. A defensive move by manager Bobby Cox backfired when Brian Hunter committed two eighth-inning errors at first base to spur the rally for New York's ninth straight World Series game victory. Derek Jeter singled home the tying run to finish Maddux. Paul O'Neill followed with a two-run single off John Rocker and pinch-hitter Jim Leyritz walked with the bases loaded to complete a 4-1 win. The All-Century Team introductions prior to Game 2 the following night were the only way to stop baseball's franchise of the century. Braves starter Kevin Millwood couldn't last through the third inning of a 7-2 rout in his first World Series appearance. New York had a seven-run lead by the fifth without a home run. David Cone needed only to escape first-inning trouble to maintain the Yankees' dominance in Atlanta. With the Braves' only hope being a road comeback similar to the 1996 Yankees, Glavine shook off his influenza to start Game 3 at Yankee Stadium. Atlanta was determined to give its ailing starter some support, as Bret Boone doubled three times in the first four innings and every Braves starter had a hit by the fifth. The Yankees' World Series streak appeared finished until Chad Curtis homered in the bottom half of the inning. Tino Martinez and Chuck Knoblauch added home runs, the latter a game-tying shot off Brian Jordan's glove in the eighth. The 6-5 comeback was complete when Curtis homered off Mike Remlinger in the 10th, the first game-ending World Series homer since Joe Carter in 1993. The deciding game belonged to Roger Clemens, who sought a trade to New York the previous winter in hopes of adding a championship to his 14-year career. The five-time Cy Young winner shut out Atlanta into the eighth inning for a 4-1 victory in the last game of the 20th Century. John Smoltz fanned 11 Yankees over seven innings, but Tino Martinez drove in two runs and Jorge Posada following with an RBI single in the third. Jim Leyritz contributed his obligatory World Series home run in the eighth. The Yankees' 25th World Championship marked the first back-to-back sweeps since the Bronx Bombers of 1938-39. The Braves became the first team to lose four World Series in one decade. In a year that saw manager Joe Torre battle prostate cancer and O'Neill, Scott Brosius and Luis Sojo lose their fathers, the history merely complemented the emotions.
