Ford Named Outstanding Performer of 1961 World Series

Oct. 9, 1961 - Whitey Ford (pictured right with Johnny Blanchard and Roger Maris), a double pitching victor for the Yankees, was named the outstanding performer in the world series today by Sport Magazine and received the magazine's seventh annual award of a Chevrolet Corvette sports car. The left-handed Ford shut out the Reds, 2-0, in the series opener and was the winner in the Yankees' 7-0 triumph in the fourth game yesterday. Ford also broke Babe Ruth's 1916-18 series record of 29 and two-thirds innings yesterday. Ford has now won nine world series games, which is another record.
