Playing their home games at Yankee Stadium, the Bronx Bombers nearly cracked the one million mark in attendance with 970,916 loyal fans filling the seats. Managed by Joe McCarthy, the Yankees beat the Chicago Cubs in four consecutive games in the 1938 Fall Classic. This marked the first time any team had ever won three consecutive World Series.
