October 5, 1953: Billy Martin leads the Yankees to their 5th title in a row

Yogi Berra died in September 2015.    He was one of the Yankees on that team that won their 5th series in a row in 1953.    Game 7 was tied going in to the bottom of the ninth and Billy Martin drove in the winning run for title # 5.   

By the way, Phil Rizzuto, another one of the 12 who played in all 5 titles, wrote a wonderful book about the legendary teams:  “The October 12“.

The 1998-2000 Yankees won 3 and so did the 1972-74 Oakland A’s.   No one has come close to winning 5 since!
