World Series History

The World Series as we understand it today originated back in 1903 after years of fighting amongst both the National and American Leagues. Each finally came to peace permitting the game of baseball to eventually crown a genuine winner without any backlash or dispute. The Boston Americans (now known as the Red Sox) defeated Honus Wagner and the Pittsburgh Pirates behind leading pitching from Cy Young to make the AL the title after beating the Buccos five games to three.
Together with the matches occurring at the end of October and sometimes going into early November, the World Series was coined the nickname,”The Fall Classic.” Ever since, it has become the final series of the year played involving the National League winner and American League champion. The agents from the leagues partake in a seven-game show to crown the victor.
Since beginning, the group with the best overall record would earn home field advantage throughout the series. That all changed when former MLB Commissioner Bud Selig cooked up the crazy idea to give home field advantage to the winner of this All-Star Game following the 2002 Midsummer Classic finished in a tie. This experiment was set into action the next season, but MLB and the MLBPA recently decided to scrap the idea from the 2016 offseason. Home field advantage will once again be determined by regular season records of both pennant winners.
