The Braves were the underdogs. They faced Casey Stengel's Yankees, or the powerhouse of the 1950's. New York had won in 1956 and 5 between 1949-53. New York and Milwaukee met again in 1958.
It was a great series for Lew Burdette, who won 3 games. He won games 5 and 7 and pitched 3 complete games. Burdette was named Series MVP.
