“The first World Series was held in 1903. It began when National League champion Pittsburgh Pirates owner Barney Dreyfuss challenged American League champion Boston Pilgrims owner Henry Killilea to a best-of-nine-games series. Thousands of fans attended each game – the first attracted more than 16,000 viewers. The Pilgrims, led by legendary pitcher Cy Young, lost that first game, but came back to win the series five games to three.
 
Although quarreling prevented a 1904 World Series, by 1905 the two leagues had signed an agreement providing for a post-season championship, and the World Series has been the highlight of the baseball season ever since.”

Chicago Cubs

It was a year ago at this time that my blog was alive with the Chicago Cubs 2016 World Series Champions !

Although they won against the Washington Nationals for 2017 in the first series; alas, they lost to the Dodgers for the National League Championship 2017.

In conclusion, here’s to next year with the 2018 Major League Baseball Season!
