World Series history
With roots that date back to the 1880s, Major League Baseball is one of the oldest pro sports leagues in the world and has already made an indelible mark on the sports scene across the U.S., Canada and around the world. The World Series was added in 1903 and has since become the ultimate goal for baseball players from the time they start to take the game seriously in little league. By 1969, the playoffs would extend beyond the one-round World Series to include the League Championship Series, which was expanded further to the Divisional Series round and recently to a one-game playoff between the two wildcard teams to get it all started. Now with 10 total playoff teams all looking to put together a championship run, the playoffs have never been more exciting than they are right now. So, buy your MLB Playoff tickets here today and cheer on your team!
