1993 WORLD SERIES

worldseriesMost Mid-West Winter League owners were surprised when the #2 Wild Card team the Fort Worth Panthers knocked off the 121 game winning #1 seed the California Quakes.   This lead to the Panthers taking on the Chihuahuas of Mexico City who had the second best record in the league with 114 wins. But the #2 Wild Card winner couldn’t get the little ankle biting dogs off their legs & the Mexico City Chihuahuas moved on to represent the American League in the 1993 Mid-West Winter League World Series.

Germantown was the favorite to move forward in the National League, but after eliminating the Barney Drive Bandits, the Grays lost out to eventual National League Champion Missouri Black Bears.  Missouri walked by the Sugar Land Skeeters in the Division Series 3 games to 0, beat the Grays 4 games to 2 in the League Championship & now represent the National League League in the 1993 Mid-West Winter League World Series.

Game #1 –  Bill Swift 17-10 2.66 vs. Jack McDowell 18-5 3.26

Mexico City & Bill Swift was cruising along in this one clinging to a 3-0 lead heading into the bottom of the 7th when the Black Bears offense decided to show up.  A 4 Spot put a quick end to the Chihuahuas hope of stealing Game #1 on the road.   Dante Bichette 2 Run Double was the key blow, but Mexico City Manager Brian Mazurek was quoted as saying “Going through Missouri’s line up was like rolling dice and passing Boardwalk and Park Place every time”.   

Final Score: Missouri 4 – Mexico City 3
Win: Bill Krueger 1-0 (0.00)
Loss: Mark Dewey 0-1 (27.00)
Save: Steve Foster #1

1993 WORD SERIES PREVIEW

Once again Jarl Jackson provides the Mid-West Winter League with his World Series Preview.

 Mexico Cityworldseries BlackBears

Two teams who have recent World Series history meet for the 1993 MWWL World Series! The Black Bears went to the World Series twice winning in 1981 and losing in 1988. The Chihuahuas won the title in 1989. Both teams still have players from their last World Series appearance although the Chihuahuas have the advantage here 9 players (Mattingly, Reynolds, Dykstra, Gwynn, Mitchell, Fernandez, Darwin, Bosio, Russell) to 4 for the Black Bears (Galarraga, Williams, Briley, Henke)

Both teams had identical 59-22 home records during the 1993 season. Missouri had the tougher route to the World Series as they had to face the two other 100 plus win teams in the National League. Mexico City was fortunate to avoid the California Quakes – the American League juggernaut in the ALCS as the MWWL Team leader in wins was upset in the Division round by the Ft. Worth Panthers.
