Coming off the expansion era of the 1960s, Major League Baseball proved highly competitive in the 1970s. Bolstered by the play of Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, George Brett and a legion of other superstars, the game surpassed expectations for intensity and excitement. Arguably the two best teams of this hard fought decade, the Cincinnati Reds and the Oakland A's faced off in the 1972 World Series. In seven fiercely contested games, the A's emerged victorious to claim their first title since 1930 when they called Philadelphia home.
