Could you imagine if this was during the social media era? I could only imagine how big of a deal would this be today. For one you have the Yankees which is the biggest brand in all of baseball (and maybe of all sports). Versus the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Dodgers are obviously a great organization as well. And back in 1956 this was a “subway” series.
