Full Summary


A season with three 100-win teams had 11 clubs with better regular-season records than the NL East-winning Atlanta Braves, but the Braves eliminated three of them in the post-season and didn’t need the maximum number of games to overcome Milwaukee, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston to win their first World Series since ’95 and only their second since the MILWAUKEE Braves won in 1957.

Historic milestones were achieved in many places. Tampa Bay won 100 games for the first time. San Francisco won a franchise-best, and 2021 MLB-best 107 games and needed every one to deny the Dodgers their ninth straight National League West title. For LA, a franchise-record-tying 106 wins got them only a single-elimination Wild Card game against St. Louis, which charged into the post-season by winning a franchise-record 17 straight. The Cardinals’ surge sidelined Philadelphia, San Diego and their superstars MVP Bryce Harper and Fernando Tatis Jr.

Though the MLB batting average of .244 was the lowest since 1968, the season offered notable power. Salvador Perez set the single-season record for home runs by a catcher with 48. Marcus Semien did the same for a second baseman with 45 HR. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was the first player younger than 23 to hit 48 HR. Kyle Schwarber tied a record with 12 HR in 10 games. Matt Olson set the record for most HR by a left-handed batter vs. left-handed pitchers. Adolis Garcia broke the Texas rookie records for HR and RBI. Patrick Wisdom set the rookie HR record for the Cubs. Cedric Mullins had a 30-30 season of homers and stolen bases, and Robbie Grossman had a 20-20. Neither had ever hit double-digits in either category before.

Yet no one shined brighter than Shohei Ohtani, who claimed unanimous MVP honors in the AL after belting 46 home runs, driving home 100 and leading the Angels’ pitching staff with 23 starts and a 9-2, 3.18 record. Harper (.309-35-84, 1044 OPS) won the NL MVP award in tighter competition with Juan Soto (.313-29-95, 999 OPS), Fernando Tatis Jr. (.82-42-97, 955 OPS) and Brandon Crawford (.298-24-90, 895 OPS).

Pitchers shined, too, tossing a record nine no-hitters. Toronto’s Robby Ray (13-7, 2.84 ERA, 248 Ks) and Milwaukee’s Corbin Burnes (11-5, MLB-best 2.43 ERA, 234 Ks, 0.94 WHIP) won Cy Young awards. The Dodgers’ Julio Urias (20-3, 2.96) led in wins, teammate Max Scherzer went 7-0 for the Dodgers after being traded from Washington and had a combined 2.46 ERA, second to Burnes. In all, eight qualifiers had sub-3.00 ERAs, 16 struck out 200-plus and 23 had WHIPS below 1.20.

This set also will feature the first regular-set cards for rookies of the year Randy Arozarena and Jonathan India and other top rookies: Wander Franco (who had a record-tying streak of reaching base 43 straight games at age 20), Adolis Garcia, Ryan Mountcastle, Patrick Wisdom, Dylan Carlson, closer Emmanuel Clase and Miami pitcher Trevor Rogers.
