American Professional Baseball is made up into 2 divisions or leagues. After a season of play and a couple of weeks of playoffs the 2 leagues, the American and National send their champions to the World Series. Although called the World Series there are only American teams participating. The recent World baseball classic showed American baseball is not the only dominate team around.
Because when the term was coined, The US WAS the world of baseball. ...and it's not just American teams (unless you're using the term "American" to refer to anyone from North America). Canada has the blue jays, and used to also have the Expos until they moved to Washington and became the Nationals in 2005. However, I believe that "World Series" is only used out of habit, and the "official" name of the championship series is actually now "The Fall Classic".
You're forgetting that there is a Canadian team in the American League.
The US isn't the only country that plays baseball in the World Series, Canada plays as well.
The Mariners and Nationals are the only two teams left to never have made a world series appearance.
Only two teams go to the World Series: the American League champion and the National League champion.
The sport originated in North America. When it became time to declare a "champion" the big wigs who controlled baseball deemed it "world series" because at the time it was the only place where a professional series of baseball was played. The name just stuck ever since. At least now days the little league world series has it right!
I don't know, but if I could guess, it's because the players aren't just from the US.
1914 = Boston Braves, despite being in last place on July 4. 1957 = Milwaukee Braves 1995 = Atlanta Braves This franchise is the only one to win World Series in three different cities. Interestingly, each city has only one Series Championship.
in world series only when playing at American league stadium
The American League champion New York Yankees swept the National League champion Chicago Cubs 4 games in none in the 1932 World Series. The World Series was the only post season played in 1932, as there were no league divisions and "wild card" teams at that time.
That was Dane Cook
