Bobcats Win World Series
Sunday, October 19th , 1958
The Cleveland Bobcats are champions, today and forever. The Bobcats topped the Los Angeles Pobladores 2-0 at Lakefront Stadium today to claim the World Series crown.
"Nobody can take this away from us, not ever," said series MVP and right fielder Stan Patterson after his club had sealed the victory. "We worked hard and we accomplished our goal."
The atmosphere was electric as the newly-crowned champs stormed the field at the conclusion of the game. Fans cheered, gloves flew in the air, high fives and hugs were the order of the day.
"From day one of spring training, I could see it in their eyes," said Cleveland manager Nick Barron. "The players had that look of intensity, of hunger, of a desire to accomplish something great, and today they did that. They're champions of the world."
The Bobcats took the series 4-1. The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the National Baseball League Eastern Division and a 101-61 record.
