Currently, whatever league wins the All-Star game will have Home-Field advantage in the World Series.
In Major League Baseball, for the Division Series and the Championship Series, Home Field is decided according to a team's Regular Season record. The team with the better record is the team that gets the most home field games. For the World Series, the league that won the All Star Game is the one that wins the home field rights for the World Series. Games 1 and 2 of the World Series will be held at the home stadium with the home field advantage rights. Games 3, 4 and 5 will be held at the home stadium with the team that does not have the home field rights. Games 6 and 7 will be held at the stadium with the home stadium rights.
When the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Oakland Athletics played in the 1988 World Series, the Dodgers had home field advantage. At that time, Major League Baseball rules provided that the home field advantage alternated between the American League and the National League. That practice continued until 2003, when MLB decided that the winner of the annual All Star game would be awarded home field advantage in the World Series.

An official National League Ford Frick baseball or an Official American League William Harridge baseball from 1946 would be worth about $250. -$500, in excellent - near/mint condition.Rawlings started to make World Series baseballs in 1978 that features The World Series logo. Before then, there was no way of knowing if a baseball was used in, or made for the World Series. If your baseball was used, and hit for a home run in the 1946 World Series, with no way of proving it, the baseball will have a lower value based on condition. Without a strong letter of provenance proving that the baseball was hit for a home run in the 1946 World Series, and by who, it cannot be sold as such. A letter of provenance from a team player or league official would be acceptable to prove it is a World Series home run game baseball. Then it could have higher value. A letter of provenance from a fan at the game will not hold much weight if any. Otherwise the baseball would be valued as a vintage Official baseball in used condition. Provenance is the history of ownership of a particular item. It allows the buyer to secure additional insight as to the origin or chain of custody of the item.
