Major League Baseball began its western expansion around 1950. Since then, there have been only three times when an American League team other than the Yankees has managed to make it to the World Series three consecutive years. Those teams are the Baltimore Orioles (1969, 1970, 1971) and the Oakland A’s (1972, 1973, 1974 and 1988, 1989, & 1990). During the 18 year period of 1947-1964, the Yankees won the American League pennant 15 times and went on to win the World Series 10 of these years.
