In the 1950's October in New York, there was only one thought on everyone's mind, will the Yankees and Dodgers meet up in the World Series?
Whether it was Duke Snider vs Yogi Berra or Jackie Robinson vs Mickey Mantle, this rivalry is ultimately number one.
Meeting in the World Series 11 times is the reason this rivalry is number one. Even though the Yankees dominated, winning eight of 11 World Series, this rivalry was the most competitive.
The true bragging rights for New York was between the Yankees and Dodgers. The boroughs of the Bronx, and Brooklyn being in the same city, yet almost countries of their own, makes this rivalry the most intense.
Sadly, it was cut short for the lack of meetings during interleague play or in the World Series.
Hopefully this rivalry can be heated back up by scheduling from the MLB or a possible World Series match-up, which is likely, with both teams.
