He was the first second baseman to achieve these numbers in consecutive seasons since Rogers Hornsby did it in 1921 and 1922. In 1995 the team reached the World Series for the first time in 41 years. Baerga hit .314, with 87 runs, 16 HRs, and 90 RBIs that championship season. Baerga had a lengthy career, playing until the 2005 season.
