The 1959 World Series featured the Los Angeles Dodgers, who had won their first pennant since moving from Brooklyn in 1958 by defeating the Milwaukee Braves 2 games to 0 in a best-of-three-games pennant playoff, and the Chicago White Sox, who had earned their first pennant in the 40 years since the Black Sox scandal of the 1919 World Series. The Dodgers won the Series in six games for their second championship in five years - the first in Los Angeles.

  • Game 3, Game 4 and Game 5 were: The first three (3) ever played on the West Coast, the first ever played in Memorial Coliseum, the first games in World Series history to exceed 90,000 in attendance each, and when it was all over — the first World Championship for a West Coast team.
  • Larry Sherry of the Los Angeles Dodgers was the fifth pitcher in World Series history to win the World Series Most Valuable Player Award.
  • After this Series, the White Sox didn't play in another until finally winning it all in 2005.
  • Ted Kluszewski played for the losing "Pale Hose", but still managed to drive in a World Series record ten runs and became the first player to have double-digit RBI totals for any length Series.
  • The Dodgers became only the second team to win a World Series after relocating (1957 Milwaukee Braves the first).
