Goats in 1962, world champions in 1963—now many believe the Dodgers, with Sandy Koufax, border on the unbeatable.

April 13, 1964
Following a fine start and a bad July the Cardinals won 19 of 20 games in late August and September to finish in second place and become the talk of the baseball world.

A Wood Memorial quiz to stimulate memories and increase the knowledge of casual fans and armchair experts

April 13, 1964
In 1963 the Braves fell from the first division for the first time since they moved to Milwaukee, but that may be deceptive. They were third with only 17 games left in the season.

April 13, 1964
Not since 1946 have the Chicago Cubs finished in the first division. No other team in the major leagues (excluding expansion clubs) can make that depressing statement.

April 13, 1964

April 13, 1964
Poor hitting held the Orioles to fourth place as home attendance fell to a 10-year low, but changes have been made.

April 13, 1964
A 14-10 record last September gained Cleveland a tie for fifth place, a much-needed lift for a team that had been hard hit by injuries and almost deserted by its fans.

April 13, 1964
