A doubleheader is when a team plays 2 games in one day. Teams used to schedule some doubleheaders, but now doubleheaders only occur when making up for a game that was canceled. Thirty years ago there was only about a half hour between games of the doubleheader, and doubleheaders either had an early afternoon start (12:00 or 1:00) or they were "twi-night" doubleheaders that started around 5:30. One ticket got you into both games. Today doubleheaders are generally "day-night" doubleheaders, with a day game and a night game played by the same pair of teams with several hours between games, and separate admission required for each game. The Mets and Yankees have played 2 two-borough doubleheaders, making up a rained out game in one stadium during the afternoon before driving to the other stadium to play the scheduled game at night.

"A couple of Mets players, John Stearns and a few guys, were saying, 'What are you doing here? Wrong clubhouse!'" Mets manager Joe Torre was going to play Cardenal, who asked out of the lineup.

During World Series games played in National League ballparks, National League rules are enforced, and the pitchers will both bat like any other position player. During World Series games played in American League ballparks, American League rules are in effect, and both teams have the option use a designated hitter and the pitcher will not bat if this option is taken.
