The St Louis Cardinals became the "best 83-win team in history" as they defeated the Detroit Tigers four games to one and won the 2006 World Series.
It was the first title for the Cardinals since the 1982 World Series. Manager Tony LaRussa became only the second manager to win a World Series in both leagues.
David Eckstein, the Cardinals shortstop, was named the World Series MVP.
