  Subway Series - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
By the 1920s, the subway had become an important form of public transport in the city and provided a convenient form of travel between the three city ballparks: the Polo Grounds, in upper Manhattan; Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx; and Ebbets Field in Brooklyn.
The term "Nickel Series" (a nickel was the old subway fare) appeared in newspapers by 1927, and "Subway Series" appeared by 1928 [1].
Similarly, the 1989 Series between the Oakland and San Francisco franchises was called the "Bay Series" or "BART Series", the latter standing for both the Bay Area Rapid Transit which connects the two cities, and in honor of the recently-deceased Baseball Commissioner, Bart Giamatti.

 ABC News: N.Y. Beat Brooklyn in Pre-Subway Series
The 1889 Series was the only one of the period between two teams from the same metropolitan area — although at the time, Brooklyn and New York were considered separate cities.
The Series pitted now-largely-forgotten stars like Roger Connor, “Orator” Jim O’Rourke, Monte Ward and Ed “Cannonball” Crane of the Giants against Dave “Scissors” Foutz, Tom “Oyster” Burns and William “Adonis” Terry of the Bridegrooms.
Although, in a broad sense, the 1889 Series may have been the first all-New York-area World Series, it was not the first time a championship of that era involved a New York team.

Still, there was no Subway Series for decades, as the fates of the Yankees and Mets were virtually opposite of each other.
