THE First World Series was in 1903, (Boston vs. Pittsburgh) along with the first test flight and Henry Ford founded Ford Motor Co. all in 1903.

One needs to remember that there were other major leagues before the American League formed in 1901.The majors played a series after the end of the regular season between the National League champion and the champion of the American Association that was called the world series. This took place in the 1880's and was designed more for the profit of the owners rather than determining a true national champion. Depending on the year played, the series' varied in length up to 15 games. It should be noted that after the demise of the American Ass. in 1893, a postseason series was played for several years between the first and second place teams in the sole surving National League. It was called the Temple Cup Series and the winner was considered the to be the league champion. So it seems that the idea of a "wild card team" is not counter to baseball tradition as it has been used in the past.

First World Series in 1903Baseball's first modern World Series was in 1903. The American League's Boston Red Sox upset the New York Giants 5 games to 3, in a best of 9 series.

The first baseball series called the World Series took place in 1882, with the American Association champion playing the National League champion. But those were considered exhibition games, and are not generally recognized as part of the World Series history.

1887 - World championship Series

Spalding guide of America in 1887 named it "Worlds championship Series" (later shortened to world series 1903) in the hope that other nations such as "Australia and Great Britain" would soon play and "become rivals"...none have. Also, as it was American league and national league meeting, then a bigger name was used..world....as regards America hoping Australia then Great Britain would play it, source states... "This didn't happen, but the name "World's Championship Series" stuck..

**I shall elaborate on the point why. People ask with Spalding guide naming it World championship Series attempting to entice other countries to play it of which it states Australia and Great Britain... why they don't play it, a major reason for this is the British invented Baseball aka Rounders for children and its historically been for them, whom it was intended...

.....so while you don't see adults from UK playing it, its VERY popular among kids up to 5th grade..notably girls who have formalised competitions nationwide. That's an elaborate but it basically covers all the bases (pardon the pun)

The first world deries was in 1876
