Yes, nine times.
The last time, prior to 2010 when the Yankees and Phillies have the chance, was 1977-1978 when the Yankees and Dodgers did it. The Yankees won both World Series.
Other times were ...
* 1957-1958 with the Braves and Yankees (each team won 1).
* 1955-1956 with the Dodgers and Yankees (each team won 1).

* 1936-1937 with the Giants and Yankees (Yankees won both).
* 1930-1931 with the Cardinals and Athletics (each team won 1).
* 1921-1923 with the Giants and Yankees (Giants won 2 and Yankees won 1). This is the only time the same teams played in 3 consecutive World Series.
* 1907-1908 with the Cubs and Tigers (Cubs won both).
Since the first World Series in 1903 the World Series was played every year but 1904, and 1994.
The Padres played in the World Series in 1984 against the Detroit Tigers, and aagin in 1998 against the New York Yankees.
Since the first World Series played in 1903 the World Series was played every year except 1904, and 1994.
*Don Baylor has played three times in the World Series, in 1986 with the Red Sox, 1987 with the Twins, and 1988 with the Athletics. *Eric Hinske has played three times in the World Series, losing with the Rays in 2008 and winning with the Red Sox in 2007 and Yankees in 2009. Lonnie Smith played in four World Series with four different teams, 1980 with the Phillies, 1982 with the Cardinals, 1985 with the Royals, and 1991 and 1992 with the Braves. * did it in consecutive years

The San Diego Padres appeared in the 1984 and 1998 World Series.
The San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers.
Absolutely not. A salary cap is communist.The "stated" benefit for a salary cap is that it distributes the talent more evenly across the league, and thereby prevents one team winning the championship over and over. But it doesn't work that way. The NFL has a salary cap, and the Patriots have dominated for the last few years. The NBA had a salary cap while the Bulls were a dynasty. MLB has NO salary cap, but there is no one dominant team. In the last 6 seasons, 6 different teams (Cardinals, White Sox, Red Sox, Marlins, Angels, and Diamondbacks) have won the World Series. Of these 6 teams, 2 of them (Marlins and Diamondbacks) did not even exist 11 years before their championship. Two teams (Angels and Diamondbacks) had NEVER won a World Series, or even a League championship. Two teams (White Sox and Red Sox) had not won a World Series in over 85 years. Only 1 teams (Marlins) had one a World Series at any time in the last 20 years. Only one team (Cardinals) even played in the World Series more than once during those 6 years.In addition, there were 4 other teams that appeared in, but did not win, a World Series during those 6 years - the Tigers, Astros, Yankees, and Giants. Only the Yankees appeared more than once, losing both times. The Tigers hadn't played in a World Series in 22 years. The Astros had NEVER played in the World Series in their 43-year history. The Giants hadn't won a World Series in 49 years and hadn't played in one in 13 years.Among those teams who won the World Series in the last 6 years, the average length of time since their last World Series win is 41.5 years. This number is artificially low because, for the Angels and Diamondbacks, who had their FIRST World Series win during this time, I cannot use more than 41 and 4 years, respectively, since that is the length of time they had been in existence. If you throw those two teams out, the average span is 51 years. That is impressive, because there are only 30 teams in MLB. This means that, ON AVERAGE, a team will win the World Series every 30 years.The average number of previous World Series wins among these 6 teams is 3.3. Compared to an average of 3.1 for ALL major league teams through the 2000 season. But that average is based on the current 30 teams. Since the World Series began in 1909, the number of teams in MLB has, for the most part, been far less than 30. I'm guessing it averages about 25, meaning that the adjusted average among all teams is 3.7 World Series wins. And the last 6 World Series Champions averaged just 3.3 previous wins.Compute some of these numbers for the last 6 Super Bowl or NBA champions. You will see that "dyanasties" are a much bigger problem in these sports, even though they have salary caps and baseball does not.By the way, baseball does have a "luxury tax", which is kinda sorta similar to a salary cap. MLB sets a "maximum" total salary for the teams, but the teams don't HAVE to abide by that maximum. If they exceed it, however, they have to pay a percentage of the amount by which they exceed the maximum. I don't really like this, but it's a whole lot better than the salary cap._____________________________________________________________________yes
Through the 2008 season, the Pirates have played in seven World Series and won five. 1979*, 1971*, 1960*, 1927, 1925*, 1909*, 1903 Years followed by an '*' are years that the Pirates won the World Series.
I conclude you're asking about the Chicago Cubs, who have not won a Series since 1908. There are teams that have not EVER won a series, but they have not been in existence for the last 100 years.
Roberto Clemente was a member of the Pirates teams that won the World Series in 1960 (against the Yankees) and 1971 (against the Orioles). He batted .310 in the 1960 Series and .414 in the 1971 Series.
Four years after first fielding a team, in 2011 the Arizona Diamondbacks defeated the New York Yankees, four games to three, in the World Series. They did so by scoring two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7.
The New York Yankees are the only team to win 5 World Series titles in 5 consecutive years. 1949-1953.
The Red Sox and the Rockies have already played. Redsox Won the World Series. The World Series had already been played, resulting in a victorious Red Sox sweep. They were playing against the Colorado Rockies.
No they are givin the equipment from the proceeds of the last years tournament
In the 100-plus years of World Series history, no team has ever won a world championship after losing the first three games.
The Boston Red Sox played in Wold Series 1903.
S.F. Giants vs N.Y. Jets
In 2000 World Series, the American League Champions Yankees faced the National League Champion Mets in th World Series. It was the first time the two teams met in the World Series. There have been previous series Where the New York Giants or the Brooklyn Dodgers faced the New York Yankees in the World Series, but it has now happened in over 50 years because both National League Franchises has since relocated.
The only current teams that have never qualified for the World Series are the Seattle Mariners and the Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals. The Chicago Cubs have not won a World Series since 1908.
Unlike the Super Bowl, whose site is determined years in advance, the World Series is played at the home parks of the teams playing that year's World Series. Since the American League won the 2008 All Star Game, their team host games 1, 2, 6, and 7. The National League champion will host games 3, 4, and 5.
