DESCRIPTION:  
Nice, rare, historic and desirable 1946 WORLD SERIES PROGRAM BOSTON RED SOX at ST. LOUIS CARDINALS. Cardinals won 4 games to 3, Manager Eddie Dyer over Joe Cronin. Teams played this one at tiny SPORTSMAN'S PARK. Clean and unscored. Colorful program is in 9 x 12 format, 32 pages plus covers.
In Game 7, the Cardinals captured the Championship 4-3 (Harry Brecheen over Bob Klinger both in releif). The dramatic victory came in the eighth inning with the score 3–3, the Cardinals' Enos Slaughter opened the inning with a single but two batters failed to advance him. With two outs, Harry Walker walloped a hit over Johnny Pesky's head into left-center field. As Leon Culberson chased it down, Slaughter started his dash. Pesky caught Culberson's throw, turned and—perhaps surprised to see Slaughter headed for the plate—hesitated just a split second before throwing home. Roy Partee had to take a few steps up the third base line to catch Pesky's toss, but Slaughter was safe without a play at the plate and Walker was credited with an RBI double. The Cardinals won the game and the Series in seven games, giving them their sixth championship.
This was the only Series for both Ted Williams and Stan Musial. Williams was playing with an injured elbow which severely limited his performance.

St. Louis remained unbeaten in World Series that went seven games... Cardinal pitcher Harry Brecheen went 3-0 in 20 innings pitched, allowing 14 hits with a 0.45 ERA. The Cardinals had beaten the Dodgers in a 2-game playoff to capture the Pennant.
Harry Brecheen, who picked up his third win of the Series with two innings of scoreless relief, escaped a two-on, nobody-out jam in the top of the ninth to clinch the World Series for St. Louis.
