On Youtube, I recently stumbled across the complete Game 7 of the 1965 World Series.
What I found fascinating was the restrained celebration after the final out. Perhaps it shows how much American culture has changed over the past 48 years.
If you skip ahead to 2:20:16, you can see the final out. SPOILER ALERT – Sandy Koufax strikes him out. But notice how subdued the celebration is. Of course, the game is in Minnesota and not Los Angeles, so that certainly is a factor. Everyone is happy but it’s far from the over-the-top New Year’s-like manic celebrations we see nowadays. No man-pile. No confetti. Just hearty handshakes.
