Noise Alert: 8 Loudest World Series in Baseball History

During his postgame press conference following the Rangers' 4-2 win in Game 5 of the 2011 World Series, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa was asked about his late inning bullpen woes.

Without hesitation, La Russa blamed the bullpen blunder on the loud Texas crowd: "It was real noisy... [The bullpen] heard 'Rzepczynski,' and didn't hear 'Motte.' I called back and said, 'Motte'; they heard 'Lynn.'"

As a result of the chaos taking place between La Russa and his bullpen, pitcher Mac Rzepcynski was brought into the game and proceeded to give up two consecutive hits, including the game-winning two RBI double off the bat of Rangers catcher Mike Napoli.

The Texas-sized crowd noise and its impact on Game 5 of the World Series conjures up memories of other notable games which featured raucous crowds which produced their own ear-piercing pandemonium.
