World Series History

The first World Series happened in 1903 and has been played every year since with two exceptions. In 1904, a team declined to play, and in 1994 it was canceled due to the MLB players’ strike. 

The New York Yankees have more World Series titles than any other Major League team, with 27 starting in 1923. Their most recent World Series win came in 2009. 

Home-field advantage

Prior to 2002, home-field advantage used to alternate between the American League and National League teams. Starting in 2003, the team that won the MLB All-Star Game claimed home-field advantage for their league in the World Series. This practice ended in 2017 when home-field advantage started being determined by which team had the best regular-season record.
