Where does the name “World Series” come from?
While many nations from Japan to the Dominican Republic play baseball, the U.S. and Canada are the only countries whose field teams are eligible to play in the World Series. That the series was originally sponsored by the New York World newspaper seems to be nothing more than an urban legend.
Today, how many games can the World Series last?
It’s a best of seven series today, but it wasn’t always that way. Back in the early days, teams played for the best of nine.
How many hours did the longest World Series game last?
Forget the bottom of the ninth — the 2005 World Series game between the Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros ran five hours, 41 minutes and spanned 14 innings.
What was the nickname for the 2000 World Series between the Yankees and the Mets?
The games in 2000 were the 14th intra-city championship in NYC history.
What team has gone the longest waiting for another World Series win?
Fans rooted, rooted, rooted for the Cubbies — and it finally paid off as the team won the 2016 World Series! The victory had been a long-time coming because the last time the Cubs won was in 1908! Things were looking good back then — a win in 1907 made them the first-ever back-to-back World Series winners.
What team has won more World Series championships than any other?
The New York Yankees have played in 40 of the 112 Series through 2016 and have won 27 World Series championships, the most Series appearances and victories of any other team. The Yankees have also lost more Series (13) than any other team.
When was the first World Series held?
There were other regional championship games as early as 1884, but the Fall Classic as we know it didn’t start until the 1903 showdown between Boston and Pittsburgh.
Who scored the most World Series home runs ever?
Bonds and Big Mac can’t even touch Mantle’s 18 World Series homers. Only the Babe comes close with 15.
Who pitched the only perfect game in World Series history?
It was back in 1956 and Don Larsen was on the mound for the Yanks to teach the (then) Brooklyn Dodgers a lesson that would go into the history books.
