On October 10, 1923 — In the first postseason game ever played at Yankee Stadium, veteran Giants outfielder Casey Stengel becomes the first player to hit a World Series homer in the Bronx ballpark, breaking a 4-4 deadlock in the top of the ninth inning with an inside-the-park round-tripper off Joe Bush. Pitcher Rosy Ryan takes the win in the Game 1 matchup and it is the first Fall Classic contest to be broadcast nationally.
