MLB World Series Tickets
When you buy your World Series tickets through TicketSmarter, you are guaranteed to experience a part of MLB history. Not to be confused with the NCAA World Series though both deal with baseball. The winner from the National League Championship Series (NLCS) plays against the winner of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) in the World Series game. To be crowned the World Series champion and be awarded the Commissioner’s Trophy, the baseball team must win at least five of the seven games. This is an annual game and has determined the MLB season champion since 1903. Because pitchers in the National League are placed in the batting order, when the World Series is played in an NL city, like Chicago or St. Louis, all pitchers have to bat. When the game is played in an American League city, like Kansas City or Boston, the pitcher is not required to bat but there is a designated hitter commonly called a DH. Don’t miss out on all of the excitement, buy your World Series tickets today.
Currently, the home team is determined by the team with the best overall season record. In the past, the home team was whichever league won the All-Star game; so if the American League won the MLB All-Star Game, the American League team in the World Series would be the home team, where they would play Game Three, Game Four and possibly Game Five.
The New York Yankees have won the World Series a total of 27 times with the 2019 champion going to the Washington Nationals. There are six teams that have never won the Commissioner’s Trophy with the Seattle Mariners as the current longest playoff drought in any of the four major pro sports teams.
