The World Series is a tradition in American sports that extends back over 100 years. The games are played in October, so there is often a crisp chill in the air at a World Series baseball game. But the cooler temperatures are offset by the electricity of the crowd during each game. Each game is critical to the outcome, so every inning and every at bat are huge. 162 regular season baseball games, and two weeks of playoff games, come down to a few World Series games. The crowds buzz, the teams are intense and each player is trying to make that one key play that will be talked about forever.
Those great moments at the World Series are some of the most recognized in sports history. Kirk Gibson pumping his fist in the air after he hit the game winning home run off Dennis Eckersley in the 1988 World Series. Joe Carter's exuberance as he rounded the bases after hitting a "walk off" three-run home run, in the bottom of the 9th inning, to win the 1993 World Series. The pure joy of the Boston Red Sox players after clinching the final out of the 2004 World Series, and ending a title drought that had lasted since 1918.
The World Series, also commonly known as the "Fall Classic" is the culmination of the Major League Baseball playoffs. The winners from the American League Championship Series (ALCS) and National League Championship Series (NLCS) square off in a best of 7 series. The home field advantage for the World Series is determined by the league that wins the MLB All-Star Game. So buy some World Series Tickets and experience this magical event.
