The 1984 MLB season brought change to the world of baseball.  Improving year after year, the Detroit Tigers cashed in on their strong defense and solid pitching staff to win the AL East winning 104 games.  The Tigers added power to the equation leading the AL in Home Runs as well.  The Kansas City Royals only finished 3 games above .500 but that was enough to win the AL West over the California Angels.  The Tigers made quick work of them in the AL Championship Series, sweeping them 3-0.  In the National League, the San Diego Padres, after finishing at 81-81 for two straight seasons won the NL West behind Tony Gwynn and a mixture of key veterans.  The Chicago Cubs put everything together, especially after acquiring Rick Sutcliffe and Dennis Eckersley to bolster their pitching staff.  Meanwhile, the New York Mets were building a young but strong team. Darryl Strawberry was the NL Rookie of the Year in '83 and the Mets added another in Dwight Gooden in 1984.  Gooden took the league by storm, winning 17 Games and striking out nearly 300 batters at the age of 19.  The Cubs took the NL East and took a 2-0 lead against the Padres and looked like they would be on their way to the World Series.  But, the Padres stormed back, winning the final three games to take the series.  They were no match for the Tigers and Detroit won the World Series 4-1.  New names, exciting youth and great baseball.   Relive it all with Dugout Steps Baseball and the 1984 Season Set.
