The 1999 series opened with Greg Maddux facing Orlando Hernández in Game 1. The Braves got on the board first in the series when Chipper Jones launched a home run down the right field line in the 4th. That would be the only hit that El Duque would allow through 7 innings while striking out 10 Atlanta batters. Maddux pitched scoreless into the 8th before running into major trouble. It began when Scott Brosius singled for the third time in the game. Pinch hitter Darryl Strawberry walked and Chuck Knoblauch reached when Braves first baseman Brian Hunter mishandled his sacrifice bunt attempt. Derek Jeter stroked a single into left with the bases loaded driving in a run. With still none out and the bases juiced, Atlanta reliever John Rocker gave up a two run single to Paul O'Neill through the right side making it 3-1 Yankees. Rocker then walked Jim Leyritz later in the inning with the bases loaded to force home another run. Mariano Rivera picked up the save to wrap up the 4-1 victory.

Game 2 featured the presentation of the All Century team as well as a Yankee explosion of early runs off Atlanta starter Kevin Millwood. In the first, Knoblauch, Jeter, and O'Neill opened the game with singles. After a double play groundout, both Tino Martinez and Scott Brosius drove in a run each to gave the Yankees a 3-0 in the first. From there the Yankees and David Cone coasted to a 7-2 win.

Golfer Payne Stewart, a good friend of Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, died between Games 2 and 3. Yankee right fielder Paul O'Neil's father died a few hours before Game 4.

In the 3rd, Brian Jordan had an RBI single scoring Boone and Jose Hernandez doubled in Jordan and Andruw Jones. Bret Boone doubled in Gerald Williams for a second time in the game in the 4th to make the score 5-1. Glavine was sharp but gave up solo homers to Martinez and Chad Curtis in the middle innings trimming the Braves lead to 5-3. Then in the 8th, Glavine surrendered a 2-run homer just over the short porch in right to Knoblauch to tie up the game at 5-5.

Game 4 featured a battle of hard throwing Cy Young award winners; Roger Clemens and John Smoltz. In the 3rd, the Yanks broke through when Tino Martinez singled off Ryan Klesko's foot driving in 2 runs with the bases loaded. Jorge Posada followed with another RBI single making the score 3-0. Clemens was outstanding until the 7th when Boone singled in Walt Weiss. Jim Leyritz added another run with a solo shot in the 8th adding to his legacy as a great postseason performer. Rivera got Keith Lockhart to fly out to LF for the final out of the series. Rivera was named MVP.

The 1999 New York Yankees became the first team to win the World Series in consecutive sweeps since the 1938-1939 Yankees. It was also the first sweep by a team without home-field advantage since 1966 when Baltimore swept the Dodgers. The Yankees' 11-1 postseason record was the best ever. That record was tied by the Chicago White Sox in 2005. The Yankees players were each paid $326,000 for this World Championship.
