Yankees shortstop and Series MVP Derek Jeter simply may be practicing Subway Series diplomacy, but he sent kudos in the direction of Shea Stadium when he said, "We made it look easy in three out of the last four years, but this one was a little bit of a struggle for us.
Fox's ratings for the World Series were astronomical in New York but dreadful elsewhere, partly because of the length of the games, partly because of the provincial flavor and, probably, partly because baseball fans didn't see much new from the Yankees this time around.
In 2000 the incomparable Jeter was the World Series Most Valuable Player for his.409 batting average, his two key home runs and his sparkling play in the field.

The World Series began in 1903 when Pittsburgh of the older National League (founded in 1876) invited Boston of the American League (founded in 1901) to play a best-of-9 game series to determine which of the two league champions was the best.
