The 1973 Season Set.  The 1973 Major League Baseball Season marked a distinct change from the baseball of the 1960s to the way the game would be played throughout the 1970s and beyond.  1973 featured the first season of the Designated Hitter in the American League.  The Kansas City Royals moved into a new stadium, called Royals Stadium.  The American League saw the Baltimore Orioles prove to be the class of the AL East once again while the Oakland Athletics won the west and looked to defend their World Series Championship of 1972.  The National League saw a pair of very good pennant races.  The New York Mets won the NL East over the St. Louis Cardinals by 1.5 games and the Cincinnati Reds won the NL West by 3.5 games over the Los Angeles Dodgers and were determined to return to the World Series after losing it in 1972.  The Oakland A's beat the Orioles in a tough five game series to win the AL Pennant and the New York Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds in another five game series.  The Mets fought very hard in the World Series against the A's but eventually fell in seven games as Oakland won their second World Series in a row.  Pete Rose was the NL MVP and Tom Seaver won the NL Cy Young Award.  Reggie Jackson was the AL MVP and Jim Palmer won the AL Cy Young Award.  Nolan Ryan beat Sandy Koufax's strikeout record of 382 by striking out one more batter to finish with 383.  There was plenty of exciting action in the summer and fall of 1973.  Relive it all with Dugout Steps Baseball and the 1973 Season Set.
