This day in baseball

On 30 October 1963, Sandy Koufax was named the National League’s Most Valuable Player.  Only six days prior, Koufax had also been unanimously voted as the winner of the Cy Young award.  Pitching 40 games during the 1963 season, Koufax finished with a 25-5 record and a 1.88 ERA.  He also went 2-0 in the World Series as the Los Angeles Dodgers swept the New York Yankees in four games.
