Milwaukee Wins World Series Crown
Friday, October 20th, 1939
The Milwaukee Brewers pulled out all the stops tonight, winning the World Series in a hard-fought series with the Detroit Tigers.

It was a seesaw affair, but with a 9-2 victory at Navin Field, Milwaukee lay claim to the franchise's 1st championship.

"There's no denying we faced a tough opponent," said Rudy York. "But as the old saying goes, 'when the going gets tough, the tough get going,' and that's what we did today."

The champs finished the regular season 93-61 and claimed first place in the National League West.

A victory parade is set to be schedule in Milwaukee in the days to come.
