The 1911 World Series featured a rematch of the previous year's matchup between the Philadelphia Athletics and the New York Giants. The Athletics were looking to defend their title, while the Giants were looking to avenge their loss. The Athletics had a strong team, led by Hall of Fame pitcher Eddie Plank and Hall of Fame outfielder/manager Connie Mack. The Giants were led by Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson and Hall of Fame outfielder/manager John McGraw. The series went the full seven games, with the Giants ultimately coming out on top, winning four games to three. The Giants won the deciding game on a walk-off single by Fred Snodgrass in the 10th inning. This was the first World Series to go the full seven games, and it marked the first time a team had come back from a 3-1 deficit to win the championship.
