  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.
Baseball researcher Doug Pappas refutes that claim, demonstrating a linear progression from the phrase "World's Championship Series" (used to describe the 1903 series as well as some of the 19th century post-season series) to "World's Series" (a term first used in the 1880s and which persisted for decades) to "World Series".

In a way, that one line summed up the feelings of many a baseball fan upon learning that renowned development studio Visual Concepts had gotten the go-ahead from Sega to develop World Series Baseball 2k2, the sequel to the soundly panned World Series Baseball 2k1.
Visual Concepts had, after all, done an absolutely superlative job with the NFL2K and NBA2K franchises, and, while some voiced concerns that they might be putting a tad more on their plate than they could handle, conventional wisdom held that VC was more than up to the task.
