The 1959 World Series featured the National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers beating the American League champion Chicago White Sox, four games to two. It was the first pennant for the White Sox in 40 years (since the 1919 Black Sox Scandal). They would have to wait until their championship season of 2005 to win another pennant. The Dodgers won their first pennant since moving from Brooklyn in 1958 by defeating the Milwaukee Braves, two games to none, in a best-of-three-games pennant playoff. It was the Dodgers' second World Series championship in five years, their first in Los Angeles, and marked the first Championship for a West Coast team. It was the first ever World Series in which no pitcher for either team pitched a complete game.
Vin Scully remarked at the beginning of the official World Series film, "What a change of scenery!" This was the only Series from 1949 through 1964 in which no games were played in New York, breaking the streak of the city that documentary filmmaker Ken Burns later called the 1950s' "Capital of Baseball". The Yankees won the AL pennant every year from 1949 through 1964, except for 1954 and 1959. In 1954, the World Series was still played in New York because the New York Giants won the N.L. pennant. Additionally, in five of the Yankees World Series appearances in this time frame, they would square off with their cross-town rivals, the Brooklyn Dodgers (1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1956) and in one they met the New York Giants (1951).
