The 1936 New York Yankees, managed by Joe McCarthy, won the World Series after finishing the MLB regular season in 1st place in the AL with a 102-51 record. After a three-year absence from the Fall Classic, the Yankees would beat the Giants in the World Series and embark on a wave of dominance in 1936 that would herald in the most powerful reign of supremacy in major league history.
DiMaggio made his majestic big league entrance in 1936 and his .323 batting average was accented with 29 homers and 125 RBIs. Gehrig smashed 49 home runs—and racked up 400 total bases for the fifth time in his career—another record.The power surge among the rest of the Yankees was electrifying. The team set a record with 995 RBIs, with five players knocking in over 100 each—including George Selkirk, Babe Ruth’s replacement in the outfield.
Yankees pitching sailed through the season with solid consistency. All five members of the New York starting rotation could be counted among the 11 AL pitchers who managed to keep their individual ERAs below 4.40.
There would be no pennant race in the AL. The Yankees made a shamble of the competition, outscoring their opponents by a whopping 434 runs and finishing nearly 20 full games ahead of reigning champion Detroit.
Looking heavily outmanned and outgunned in the World Series, the Giants gave it the best they could behind King Carl and Master Melvin. And when Hubbell locked down the Yankees in Game One with a 6-1 victory, the aroma of a major upset hung suspended in the air.
But any illusion of a Giant October surprise quickly vanished in Game Two. The Yankees scored two in the first, seven in the third, and six more in the ninth as part of an 18-4 annihilation. Alas for the Giants, reality had set in. The Giants could squeak out only one more victory, a 5-4, 10-inning battle in Game Five that only prolonged the inevitable; the next day, the Yankees wrapped up the Series in classic Bronx Bomber fashion, thrashing the Giants, 13-5.
