The 1973 World Series matched the defending champions Oakland Athletics against the New York Mets; the A’s won in seven games for their second of three consecutive World Series titles. Game 2, eventually won by the Mets 10–7 in 12 innings, set a new record for the longest game in Series history at four hours and thirteen minutes. Along with blinding sunshine “turn(ing) every fly ball into adventure” (especially for a 42-year-old Willie Mays), Curt Gowdy described the contest in the official MLB 1973 Fall Classic highlight film as one of the “longest and weirdest games in World Series history”.
A’s Owner Charlie Finley was furious at Andrews’ twelfth-inning miscues; he proceeded to punish Andrews (and further alienate A’s manager Dick Williams) by placing the infielder on the disabled list—citing a fake injury that would have sidelined Andrews for the rest of the Series. Commissioner of Baseball Bowie Kuhn stepped in, reactivated Andrews, and disciplined Finley.
