It's sometimes known as the Fall Classic, although the World Series has been obscured a bit by football in recent years.
And Wednesday, it begins again, with Boston and St. Louis, two of baseball's most dominant teams in recent years, starting Game 1 at 7:30 p.m. (All games are on FOX.)
So we thought we'd bring you some interesting facts about the World Series.
- NOVEMBER BASEBALL?: Not this year. If the series goes the full seven games, it will end on Oct. 31.
- REMATCH: These same franchises met in the 2004 Series, with Boston winning. It's the Cardinals' fourth Series appearance since 2004, and Boston's third.
- MOST WORLD SERIES HOME RUNS: Not surprisingly, it's a Yankee from days of yore - Mickey Mantle, with 18.
- MOST WORLD SERIES VICTORIES BY PITCHER: Again, a Yankee - Whitey Ford, with 10.
- ATLANTA BRAVES: They were in the World Series five times in the 1990s, but have not made it back since 1999.
