I assume you mean the first team to lose the first two games of the Series on the road and come back to win. That was the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers who lost the first two games of the Series to the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 3. Other teams to lose the first two games of the Series on the road and win were: The 1956 Yankees lost the first two games to the Dodgers at Ebbets Field and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 3. The 1958 Yankees lost the first two games to the Milwaukee Braves at County Stadium and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 3. The 1965 Los Angeles Dodgers lost the first two games to the Minnesota Twins at Metropolitan Stadium and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 3. The 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates lost the first two games to the Baltimore Orioles at Memorial Stadium and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 3. The 1978 Yankees lost the first two games to the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 2. The 1981 Dodgers lost the first two games to the Yankees at Yankee Stadium and came back to win the Series, 4 games to 2.

In the 1996 World Series the New York Yankees lost the first 2 games at home and then won 4 straight to win in 6 games - has that ever been done before?

No, the 1996 Yankees are the only team to ever lose the first 2 World Series games at home and then sweep the next 4 games to win the Series in 6. The 1985 Royals and 1986 Mets both lost the first 2 World Series games at home and came back to win the Series, but they both needed a game 7. Both teams were losing going into their final at bat in Game 6, but came back to win it, thanks partially to a memorable play at first base. For the Royals it was an incorrect call by umpire Don Denkinger. For the Mets it was a ground ball that went through Bill Buckner's legs. The 1978 Yankees were the first team to lose the first 2 World series games and then sweep the next 4 -- but their first 2 losses were on the road (in Los Angeles). like two
