One of the great rivalries in baseball history is renewed this weekend when the Yankees meet the Dodgers in Los Angeles. Going back to the days when the Dodgers played in Brooklyn, these two franchises met in 11 Fall Classics from 1941 and 1981. The Yankees won eight of the 11 matchups.  

Former Dodgers first baseman Steve Garvey -- a 10-time All-Star, four-time Gold Glove Winner and 1974 National League MVP -- played in the last three of those World Series, losing to Reggie Jackson, Thurman Munson and company in 1977 and ’78 before Garvey’s Dodgers won the crown in ’81.  

On this new “30 With Murti,” Garvey shares his memories of those great chapters in baseball history and his thoughts on the current Dodgers team which could be headed to its third straight World Series.
