In baseball, the World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball in North America, played in October after the end of the regular season between the pennant winner of the American League and the pennant winner of the National League.
The Series winner is determined through a best-of-seven playoff (except in 1903, 1919, 1920 and 1921 when the winner was determined through a best-of-nine playoff).
The 1904 Series was supposed to be between the AL's Boston Pilgrims and the NL's New York Giants.

 1903 WS - BR Bullpen
The Series was the result of the peace pact signed in January 1903 in Cincinnati, OH between the presidents of the two leagues - Ban Johnson for the American League and Harry Pulliam for the National League - that ended two years of bickering, contract jumping and name-calling that was hurting both leagues' attendance.
As the 1903 season drew to a close and with his team in first place, Barney Dreyfuss, the owner of Pittsburgh's franchise, saw the potential of re-kindling fans' interest by arranging a series of games with the rival league's champions, Boston.
The first World Series game was played on October 1, 1903 at Boston's Huntington Avenue Grounds before a packed crowd of over 16,000, an enormous number for the time, which indicated immediately that the Series had caught fans' imaginations.

The first World Series, in 1903, was a best-of-nine affair arranged by the winners of the NL and the AL and won by the AL's Boston Pilgrims in a 5-3 upset over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
With the Series held in two small ballparks and the broadcast fees now aimed at a player pension fund, the Cardinal share of $3,748 and the Red Sox portion of $2,140 is the smallest Series payoff since 1918.
Series MVP Bret Saberhagen pitches the shutout while Cardinals ace John Tudor allows five runs in 21/3 innings and fellow 20-game winner Joaquin Andujar is ejected for arguing balls and strikes during Kansas City's 6-run 5th inning.

Boston evened the Series, though, when Bill Dinneen threw a three-hitter and Patsy Dougherty walloped two homers in a 3-0 triumph.
