Once more in '74. It started as a rally cry for the season, but the Oakland Athletics delivered on the promise and became one of the best teams of all-time by winning their third consecutive World Series Title. The Swingin A's were the hottest thing in the Bay Area led by the hitting exploits of Reggie Jackson and Captain Sal Bando. Packed with some power bats, it was really the pitching that carried them to a title. Cy Young winner Catfish Hunter and Vida Blue were a formidable duo and the athletics had one of the best closers of all-time in Rollie Fingers to slam the door.
