Who Owned October (#WOO) Tallies Updated for ALCS Game 4 and NLCS Game 3 – October 19, 2021

Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times

Who owned October on October 19?

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO(Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.
