Urban Shocker Stars in SimSeries

Late in 2001, major league baseball conducted a 64-team simulation series, with whatifsports.com, to determine the greatest team of all time. The results have appeared on the web site www.mlb.com.

The 1927 New York Yankees beat the 1975 Cincinnati Reds in the Finals, 4 games to 3, on Babe Ruth's 14th-inning home run in the final game. The pitching star of the tournament was Urban Shocker, who had a record of 6-0, including a one-hitter.

Who says you don't get a second chance in life.or after life? Urban's heart disease held him out of the 1927 World Series, despite his 18-6 record. 74 years later, he gets a chance to show what he was capable of.
