    Coming back from 2-0 in the World Series

    How many teams have come back from 2-0 to win the World Series? I got interest in this because I recently discovered that this happened two years in a row, in 1955 and 1956, with the same two teams competing, both with the Dodgers coming back from an 0-2 deficit against the Yankees in '55, and the Yankees doing the same against the Dodgers in '56. In fact, both series had the same win sequence (for the Series-winner, in was LLWWWLW for both, and for the home team, it was WWWWWWL for both.) So, how many teams have won the World Series after losing the first two games?

    I was unaware that there was ever a best of 9.

    Owners originally made it a best of nine in order to maximize gate receipts.
