Best Answer

1904: Owing to business rivalry between the two leagues, especially in New York, and to personal animosity between Giants manager John McGraw and American League President Ban Johnson, the Giants declined to meet the champions of the "junior" or "minor" league. McGraw even went so far to say that his Giants were already the World Champions since they were the champions of the "only real major league".
