The World Series, first played in 1903, is the culmination of eight months of work and grit where only one team gets crowned the champion of Major League Baseball. Held in October every year, the World Series is a best-of-seven matchup between representatives of the American League and National League. The game is held in both team's home parks. The team that comes from the league that won the All-Star game that year gets home field advantage by getting one extra game played at their home park.
The New York Yankees have won the World Series 27 times in their illustrious history, and second place is not even close. They won their first in 1923, and by the time we had hit 1960 they had amassed 18 titles. The Cardinals have 11 titles, and are the only other club with double figure World Series wins. The list of past champions shows you a complete portrait of every Fall Classic. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for World Series tickets.

World Series Experience and History
Over the last 20 years, many stadiums have hosted World Series games, most of which being old Yankee Stadium which was recently replaced in the Bronx. Whether it be Turner Field in Atlanta or AT&T Park in San Francisco, the World Series transforms any major league park to the most electric place in the country for a few nights every October.
1960: Bill Mazeroski's Walk-Off Home Run
The Pirates were in Game 7 of the World Series against the mighty New York Yankees at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh. With one swing of the bat in the bottom of the ninth, Mazeroski won the game for the Pirates and gave sports fans one of the most memorable moments in sports history. It was the first time the World Series had been won with a Walk-Off Home Run in its 57-year history.
1986: It Gets Through Buckner
Mets and Red Sox fans will remember this game forever, though it brings different emotions to each. The Red Sox were about to win their first World Series since 1918, but they managed to give away Game 6 of the 1986 World Series to the Mets when they couldn't close out what looked to be a sure win in the bottom of the 9th, capped when a routine ground ball went through Bill Buckner's legs at first base. Shea Stadium went wild and the Mets went on to win Game 7 and the World Series.
2011: One Out Away for Texas
The Texas Rangers took a 3-2 series lead going back to St. Louis, and had a 7-5 lead in that Game 6 going into the 9th inning. Rangers reliever Neftali Feliz had two outs, but David Freese hit a game-tying triple to tie it. Then in the 11th, Freese delivered again with a walk-off homer to win the game. The Cardinals won Game 7 handily and thus won the World Series.
