  World Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In baseball, the World Series is the championship series of Major League Baseball in the United States and Canada, 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) and is awarded the World Series Trophy, as well as World Series rings.
These series' were arranged by the individual teams, not by the leagues directly, the same as the 1880s World's Series matches had been, and which had often proved troublesome.
